Where to Go

Labor & Delivery is located on the third floor of the Boling/East Pavilion (the tallest building on our campus). The East elevators are directly across from the coffee shop in the main lobby. Take these to the third floor and follow the signs to Labor & Delivery. You will pick up the phone at the locked entrance and the nurses will direct you to a private OB Triage room for evaluation.

OB Emergency Department

OB Emergency Department is made up of 5 private rooms in the Labor and Delivery Department. It serves as the obstetric emergency room to evaluate pregnancy problems or to confirm active labor before you are admitted. Your doctor will tell you when to go to our OB emergency department for evaluation and one support person may accompany you at this time. You may be evaluated in a private room and sent home for follow up care with your regular doctor or you may be admitted for continued care. Once you move to an LDR Suite (Labor, Delivery, Recovery) you can have up to four visitors with physician approval.
