Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center had the ribbon cutting for their newly renovated Women’s Health Center yesterday in Woodbridge.
The medical center recently celebrated 45 years in the community. Learn more about their anniversary here.
“For decades, we’ve served the community as Women’s and Children’s services. As we look towards the future, we are focused on the comprehensive needs of women in Northern Virginia. The new Women’s Health Center provides the infrastructure we need to expand our services and care for women throughout their lifetime,” said Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center President Kathie Johnson.
The renovation included updated rooms, family birthing units, and an open floor plan. The 27 renovated rooms have an ensuite bathroom, infant warming beds, space for visitors, and are positioned close to nursing staff, according to a release.
“State of the art nursing stations allow caregivers to monitor mothers’ labor and symptoms as they occur and allow immediate response. This, coupled with Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center’s level 2 NICU, supported by our partnership with Children’s National Health System, enables us to ensure 24/7, top of the line, neonatology care, all to benefit the tiniest members of our community,” stated a release.
In addition to the building upgrades, Sentara has assembled a team of female “Nurse Navigators” that specialize in areas of women’s health, to provide care for patients.
Hospital administrators, staff, and former patients gathered excitedly to cut the ribbon on the new facility.
