Women's Services

Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital broke ground for the new Women’s Center in June, 2011.The OB portion of the new Women’s Center opened in December 2013. The second floor space housing the Women’s Diagnostic Imaging Services opened in July 2014. The entire building is 42,000 square feet. The third floor will not be built out at this time. It will house private patient rooms sometime in the future as community growth dictates the need for more inpatient rooms. With over 14,000 square feet of space, the new Maternal/Child department in the Women’s Center more than triples the size of the former OB Unit.

The second floor Women’s Diagnostic Imaging Center includes:

  • Digital Mammography
  • Regular Ultrasound
  • 3/D & 4/D Ultrasound
  • Automated Breast Ultrasound
  • Digital Stereotactic Breast Biopsies
  • Bone Densitometry
  • Echocardiography

The second floor also includes:

  • Physician Sleep Rooms
  • McCullough Resource Library

The Women’s Center was built with funds from Measure L. Measure L was a bond measure intended to raise $32 million over a 20 year period to upgrade Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital.

The bond helped pay for:

  • New ER with CT Scanner
  • New Women’s Center
  • New Physical Rehabilitation Unit
  • New In-Patient Surgical Unit
  • The Support Services Building
  • Medical and Technological Equipment Upgrades

The bond measure was placed on a first-ever mail in ballot in May of 2005. Thanks to support of the community, the bond passed with a record setting 77% of the vote. The success of Measure L is also representative of the pride the staff has in their dedication to providing excellent healthcare to the community.

The bond however, only covered the physical structure of the Women’s Center. The Hazel Hawkins Hospital Foundation raised over $500,000 to equip the new OB unit and the HHH Auxiliary donated $300,000 toward the purchase of new digital mammography equipment. Throughout the facility, you will see recognition signage acknowledging our very generous donors.

The new Maternal/Child Department includes:

  • 13 – 19’x19’ Private, spacious Birthing Suites with amenities to accommodate family members and visitors
  • Hotel-like amenities for mom
  • State-of-the-Art operating suite & Recovery Room for C-Sections
  • Two Nurses Stations
  • Newborn Nursery
  • 2-story Atrium Lobby and waiting area

We are pleased to offer hotel-like amenities for new moms. They will receive a deluxe terry cloth robe and slippers to keep, a personal hygiene toiletries kit, plush terry cloth towels in the bathroom, wall mounted hair dryers in all rooms, WiFi access, complimentary coffee service, a special gourmet dinner, and free on-call massage services.

As infant security is always of utmost importance to us, we’ve installed the Hugs® infant protection system to safeguard infants from the threat of abduction. The Hugs system is configured to operate in a number of ways to readily support our existing security systems. Each infant wears a comfortable and unobtrusive Hugs tag attached by the means of a soft tamper-proof strap around his or her ankle. The computer console displays floor plans of the facility showing tag locations with monitored areas and doors indicated. Alarms are generated if the strap is cut or tampered with, if the infant is moved to an unauthorized zone, or if the tag’s signal is no longer detected.

All babies will “room in” with their mothers. A baby will only be in the nursery if they are in need of additional medical care or if Mom needs to take a shower or a nap and cannot give her full attention to the infant and there is no other family member available to keep an eye on the infant. Then, the nurses will keep the infant in the nursery where they can monitor them until Mom is available.
