Our Commonwealth Health Care Corporation’s Labor and Delivery Unit is located in the South wing of the hospital on the second level. Our staff consists of 9 Registered Nurses, 5 Midwives, 3 Obstetrician/Gynecologists (OBGYN) Dr. Jeanolivia Grant, Dr. Liane Mizgala, Dr Maria Hy and 2 private physicians with hospital privileges, Dr. Anthony Stearns and Dr. Helen Taro. These individuals are entrusted with the delivery of approximately 1,000 babies each year in the CNMI. Our natural labor process is supported by the staff and cesarean section is available when needed. Our Labor and Delivery staff is certified in Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP), Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
Our unit features 4 birthing rooms where mothers can labor and deliver. Each room is equipped with a fetal monitor, a birthing bed which accommodates different labor positions, and a radiant warmer which allows babies to be assessed in the same room as the recovering Mom. Parents have the opportunity to bond with their new baby as soon as possible after birth.
