Luxury Maternity Suites Arrive at UM/Jackson
Women who deliver their bundles of joy at the Women’s Hospital at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center can now look forward to a little luxury during their stay.
As part of a comprehensive renovation project, the hospital recently opened its new “Little Miracles Maternity Suites,” a modernized maternity unit with plush, spa-like amenities. The upgrades include state-of-the-art equipment and 20 private suites for postpartum women and their families.
“The suites are an extension of our care and support to mothers who have just given birth,” said Salih Y. Yasin, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Miller School of Medicine and Director of Obstetrics and Patient Safety at Jackson’s Women’s Hospital.
“Giving women a comfortable environment to recover from childbirth and nurture their newborns contributes to their overall postpartum health,” he said.
The spacious suites have flat-screen televisions, hotel-style safes, and stylish bathrooms.
Guests also have the option of upgrading to VIP suite accommodations, with pull-out couches for loved ones to sleep comfortably, an assortment of spa amenities, including L’Occitane toiletries, a celebration meal and gourmet dining selections.
The new maternity unit also includes a family resource center, family lounge, a discharge suite and private breastfeeding rooms. Among other hospital upgrades, obstetrics and gynecology operating rooms received renovations, as did the world-renowned neonatal intensive care unit at UM/Jackson Holtz Children’s Hospital.
The upgrades are part of Jackson Health System’s reinvestment in its facilities to complete renovation and modernization projects to improve care for patients.
