OB NICU

Award-winning care close to home

The mothers who have delivered babies at Williamson Medical Center have spoken, and the result of that patient feedback is a prestigious accolade for our extremely popular OB, NICU and maternity departments. We are proud to have been named as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics by the Women’s Choice Award® for the fifth year in a row and have also received the 2019 “BEST for Babies” award from The Tennessee Department of Health and the Tennessee Hospital Association.

NICU

NICUOur Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is another reason our maternity department continues to gain accolades from moms who deliver here. With a full-time neonatologist, combined with a team of neonatal nurse practitioners and other specially trained nurses, our littlest ones are provided top-notch care until they are able to go home with their families.

WMC is equipped for high-risk births, such as multiples or births with complications. And with our spacious birthing suites, you will experience the birthing process in a comfortable, private environment.

Family-Centered Care

At Williamson Medical Center, we know the birthing experience is important to each member of your family, which is why we encourage a strong partnership between the family and our team of medical providers. You tell us who needs to be involved in the birthing process and we will work with you to make sure the experience is safe and memorable for everyone.

Rooming-In

OB CareParents are encouraged to keep their new baby in their room as much as possible to promote the healthiest start for their little one. Rooming-in gives new parents the opportunity to learn how to care for their infant, with the professional assistance of our nursing staff. A nursery nurse also is available to provide rest and comfort to the new mom.

Childbirth Education Classes

We offer childbirth education classes as well as breastfeeding classes to anyone in the community planning to deliver at Williamson Medical Center. Click here for more information, to see class schedules and to pre-register for any of these classes.

Caring for your baby begins long before your baby is born. Early care by an obstetrician can help prevent or identify potential problems. If you think you are pregnant, we encourage you to see a doctor. If you do not have a physician, please call 615.435.5350 or click here for a complete directory of physicians.
