If you haven’t seen the construction, road blocks, or huge signs, St. Elizabeth’s hospital is expecting.  The new facility is due to open on November 4th.  What better way is there to celebrate the anticipation of the big day other than a Community Baby Shower?  On Saturday, September 9, 2017, the first viewing of St. E’s new baby was available and open to the public. The Bundles for Babies event was held at the Women and Infant Center and offered tours of the new maternity facility, as well as a meet and greet with some of the staff as well as informational packets and prizes.

“We are excited for the new facility.  It’s so beautiful and all of our nurses just love being a part of this experience for people.  It is designed in a way that we can put so much more focus on family bonding.”
