McHENRY – Centegra Health System is moving all newborn deliveries to Centegra Hospital – McHenry starting at 7 a.m. Sept. 13.

Obstetricians are instructing their patients to go to Centegra Hospital – McHenry when they are in labor.

“For many months we have planned to centralize inpatient obstetrics services,” said Rachel Sebastian, vice president and site administrator at Centegra Hospital – McHenry.

In addition to renovated private rooms, the Family Birth Center now has a second Cesarean-section suite. Centegra also has added wellness and amenity services to the experience such as bedside spa treatments and robes. Mothers also will get a bath and body gift set, a quilted cooler for milk storage and a meal to take home, according to a news release.

Outpatient obstetrics services still will be available at locations throughout McHenry County.
