Lee Health’s expanded obstetrics (OB) services and renovated patient rooms at HealthPark Medical Center are set to open next week.

The health system will now feature 107 OB beds. All of the newly renovated rooms at HealthPark will be fully private with family sleep capabilities. In addition to adding more beds, this move helps meet several other goals of Lee Health’s OB service line.

The renovated delivery rooms are located near the unit’s operating suites should they be needed. In addition, The OB Emergency Department and OB triage located in HealthPark’s emergency department is being expanded from three to seven beds, with a completion date of July 1. 

The last day for patients to come to Gulf Coast Medical Center for delivery is Feb. 26. Patients who go into labor after Feb. 26 should go to HealthPark Medical Center.
