Stay Close to Your Baby at All TimesPackard Children’s Hospital is the only children's hospital in the local area — and one of the few in the country — to offer obstetric, delivery and newborn services all in one place. Whether your baby stays in your room with you, goes to the Well Baby Nursery, or one of you requires more specialized care, the two of you are always in the same building.
We provide quick, 24-hour access to pediatric hospitalists, high-risk obstetricians, anesthesiologists, neonatologists and a full range of pediatric services should you or your baby require specialty care. We are also next door to Stanford Hospital & Clinics and can provide access to their adult specialists.
Arriving after DeliveryApproximately one hour after delivery, you will be transferred from Labor and Delivery to your room on the Maternity Unit.
Our Maternity Unit has 52 beds that are in private and semi-private rooms.
