Private Rooms and Upscale Amenities Add to Mom’s Comfort after Birth
Reno, Nev. (Jan. 8, 2009) – The stork has a new favorite nesting spot – Renown Regional Medical Center’s Baby & Family Suites. This newly remodeled floor includes 28 luxurious, private rooms that offer new moms every comfort as they recover from delivery. Along with the new state-of-the-art William N. Pennington Nursery, Renown Regional’s latest addition will compliment the skill and expertise of the women and children’s hospital staff.
To celebrate the opening, Renown Regional is inviting the community to an Open House event Saturday, Jan. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Mack Auditorium, first floor of the Sierra Tower. The free event will provide expectant mothers, younger families and interested community members with a preview tour of the new Baby & Family Suites. Also during the Open House will be a baby and family expo offering ice cream (donated by Model Dairy) and pickles, a fashion show, massages by Massage Envy, Barnes & Noble children’s story hour and more. Door prizes will include car seats, gift certificates to local retailers and more.
Renown Regional’s Baby & Family Suites include private European-style restrooms, two-toned laminate hardwood floors, and many other indulgent touches. New moms will enjoy soft 300-thread count sheets and luxury pillows, and the comfort doesn’t stop there. Karen Neuberger gowns, provided by The Children’s Miracle Network, will allow new moms to relax, recuperate, bond and breastfeed without any fuss, but enough coverage for personal privacy. Mom will also enjoy amenities such as a flat-screen television, original artwork, lavish toiletries and ample storage space for all of mom’s personal belongings.
Pull-out sleepers for mom’s partner further promotes the bonding experience by allowing the new family to remain in the room together during the hospital stay. Each room has a pair of gliding chairs for guests or mom to enjoy with the new baby.
“Having a baby is a special time for every family,” said Denise Nelsen, RN, Renown Health director of women and children’s services. “The Baby & Family Suites offer new mother’s a refreshing, relaxed atmosphere to recover and bond with their children. Our top priority is mom and baby’s well-being, these new rooms and the William N. Pennington Nursery will compliment the care we provide.”
Located on the same floor as new moms, The William N. Pennington Nursery keeps babies close. The state-of-the art nursery features a family viewing area, complete with a built-in bench so younger siblings can see the new baby. The nursery also includes built-in radiant warmers, new scales and blanket warmers, conveniently located together to keep babies warm.
