||“The Family Place” consists of “The Birthing Center” which contains five labor and delivery rooms, a surgical birth room and two outpatient rooms. We are providing deliveries in a homelike environment. The services include outpatient testing, vaginal and surgical deliveries and post-delivery tubal ligations.
Our recently renovated pediatric wing has seven beds and houses a classroom where we conduct community classes. The pediatric wing also includes a play area for our young patients.
Our current classes for the community fall under the catagory of “First Steps for Families” and are as follows. Contact Donna Sallee at (903) 927-6498 for more information.
