On July 17, Jackson Health System celebrated the opening of its newest Little Miracles Maternity Suites located at The Women’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial. The new suites are located on the third floor, Unit 3A. The opening marks the completion of an ambitious project that began in 2014 to renovate a total of 40 private birthing suites to allow for a more family-centric setting. The space was designed with a spa-like atmosphere creating a calm environment for new mothers caring for their newborns.
In addition, the maternity suites offer a wide range of birthing options including neonatal care, critical services and an array of classes for new moms. The suites also boast a Baby-Friendly designation from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). In South Florida, Jackson is the first health system to meet Baby-Friendly standards, which empower mothers to give their babies the best possible start through education about the benefits of breastfeeding. For more information, please visit Jackson Health System Maternity Services or call 305-585-1111.
On behalf of The Women’s and Babies Hospital, Jackson Health System and Jackson Health Foundation, we would like to extend a warm thank you to the many donors that supported these significant renovations and made the completion of this project a reality.
