High-Risk Pregnancy Care
The medical staff is available to manage pregnancy-related conditions such as gestational diabetes or preeclampsia, as well as provide specialized care for those with existing medical conditions.
Labor and Delivery
Easton Hospital has been welcoming new babies into our maternity department since 1909. Each of our labor and delivery suites includes an adjustable birthing bed, bathroom, shower, rocking chair, TV and a comfortable recliner for dad or a family member to stay overnight. A whirlpool tub may be requested based on availability. When you are ready to deliver, you won’t be moved from your room or taken away from those you want near.
All of our nurses are trained in neonatal resuscitation, and many hold other certifications as well, including advanced fetal monitoring, inpatient obstetrics and lactation. Easton Hospital offers a Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Most babies are born healthy and admitted to our newborn nursery, but unfortunately, some babies are born prematurely or with a condition that requires special medical attention. Easton Hospitals Level IIIA Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) can accommodate these babies in a specially designed protective environment equipped with monitors, ventilators and isolettes. In our Level III NICU, newborns receive round-the-clock care from specially trained neonatologists (physicians who specialize in the care of newborns) and nurses. Here, modern technology is combined with human touch to give at risk babies the best start in life. For more information, please call: (610) 250-4332

Whooping Cough: Your Questions Answered
A cough can be a reaction to a tickle in ones throat, a symptom of the common cold or even a device for interrupting conversations. But when its caused by pertussis (whooping cough), a highly contagious bacterial infection, a cough can be far more serious. It can break ribs, induce vomiting and leave its victims gasping for breath. Most children in the U.S. are immunized against whooping cough, yet it is still one of the most common vaccine-preventable diseases in America.
