The Division of Obstetrics at Flushing Hospital Medical Center is staffed by Board Certified physicians who work side by side with a team of caring and compassionate nurses and other specially trained support staff. The entire team at Flushing Hospital is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to both mother and baby throughout the prenatal care period, delivery, and postpartum care.
Flushing Hospital recently renovated and expanded our entire mother baby unit to provide you with the most comfortable and relaxing environment to experience childbirth. Appropriately titled our “New Beginnings” unit, this area includes our new Labor, Delivery, and Recovery (LDR) suites, which will provide a home-like atmosphere for the entire family. In addition, our new, private mother-baby postpartum rooms offer many convenient amenities.
Flushing Hospital understands that not all pregnancies are the same and for that reason we offer many specialized services through our division of Maternal Fetal Medicine to meet all your pregnancy needs.
