Family Birth Place

A brand new hello delivered your way!

When you’re expecting, you want the best care available for yourself and your baby. That’s why Clark Memorial Hospital’s Family Birth Place is here.

A specially-designed, state-of-the-art labor and delivery facility unlike any other in the area, the Family Birth Place includes seven labor and delivery suites, four triage rooms, an expanded nurse’s station, post-delivery mother/baby facilities and nursery facilities. To ensure we meet all the needs of expectant mothers and their babies, we work with several OB/GYN practices, and we even have nurse midwives as part of our medical staff. We’re also doula-friendly.

Join Us On the Journey to Baby-Friendly Accreditation

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) is a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to encourage and recognize hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding. The BFHI assists hospitals in giving mothers the information, confidence, and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies or feeding formula safely, and gives special recognition to hospitals that have done so.

If you are going to have a baby, or are thinking about having one, we invite you to tour the Family Birth Place. Call (812) 283-2516 to schedule a tour.
