Designed for the next generation: Maternity suites now open
Bryn Mawr Hospital has been caring for families and welcoming new life on the Main Line for generations. As part of the Bryn Mawr Hospital modernization initiative, the hospital listened to the needs of our community and built labor and delivery suites, a new maternity unit, and a level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Our Patient Pavilion features a maternity unit rooted in consequential design. Which means the setting of each maternity suite—from more privacy to more natural light.
The labor and delivery suites are expansive, with large windows and private bathrooms along with the latest technology for you and your new loved one, including bassinets that recede into the wall. For patients looking for a deluxe experience, we offer a luxurious comfort package.
As part of the labor and delivery, there are two C-section operating rooms, recovery and staff support areas, as well as a comfortable family waiting area that overlooks a green roof garden and the two-story Atrium adjacent to the Warden Lobby.
The maternity unit on the second floor features 25 large, private, well-appointed rooms to accommodate antepartum and postpartum mothers. Patients, families and visitors will appreciate the upgraded finishes in each room as well as the increased natural light, a sleeper sofa for family members and more space for visitors. A large lounge on the unit accommodates childcare classes and there is a dedicated private room for patients, family members and employees to breastfeed or pump.
The labor and delivery and maternity units complement the existing Pediatric Emergency Department (ED) and Pediatric Unit at Bryn Mawr Hospital where young patients are seen by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Bryn Mawr Hospital pediatric nurses.
The Bryn Mawr Hospital Maternity Unit is dedicated to the late Mrs. Dorrance Hamilton—a beloved philanthropist and champion of Bryn Mawr Hospital.
