The New Beginnings Birthing Center at PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center is designed using the Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum (LDRP) model. This means new moms and their families are able to experience the labor, delivery and recovery process all in the same room. Families can gather around for support without having to be moved throughout the hospital.
Our staff is dedicated to a model of minimum intervention. This is coupled with the expertise of highly qualified, board certified Obstetricians/ Gynecologists who are available 24/7. We offer a modern medical facility with current technology and a dedicated staff.
We periodically offer childbirth and breast feeding classes free to the public. Call us to inquire.
