The Sentara Norfolk General Hospital Women's Health Pavilion offers a full range of services for mothers and babies - from the problem-free pregnancy to one that might be high-risk. SNGH offers private birthing rooms for labor and delivery and dedicated operating rooms for C-section deliveries. Special private post-partum rooms allow mothers the choice of having the baby with them in their room.
A newborn nursery is available, as well as a 48-bed Special Care Nursery equipped with state-of-the-art medical technology and staffed around the clock by board-certified neonatologists (specialists in newborn care) to care for our sickest babies.
Sentara Norfolk General Hospital shares the academic medical center with the Jones Institute and Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters. The Jones Institute at Eastern Virginia Medical School, one block from the hospital, is one of the world's leading centers for infertility treatment. Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters is down the hallway from our delivery rooms, allowing convenient access to their neonatal intensive care unit. These affiliations facilitate convenient, accessible, high-quality care.
Sentara Norfolk General Hospital also offers a perinatal intensive care unit for high-risk patients and complicated births.
