Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington community open house

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

Burlington, WI -- Having a baby is a wonderful time in a woman's life. In honor of this special event, we have recently completed an exciting renovation of the hospital's obstetric unit. The new area includes:

  • Brand new birthing suites
  • A dedicated c-section room
  • New lactation room and consulting services

To help celebrate, make plans to attend a community open house from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Sunday, October 19, Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington, 252 McHenry Street.

"We are very pleased to be able to share our story on this,'' said Lyn Maker, registered nurse and manager of the unit. "We have added many new upgrades to help make the birthing experience comfortable and memorable for everyone.''

Other upgrades include new postpartum and nursery areas, a whirlpool room, and updated family lounge and waiting areas. Many of the exciting new features came from input by our labor and delivery nurses. Our caring and experienced women's health care professionals are committed to making your birthing experience one that you will remember forever.

Participants will meet in the Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington's cafeteria for a free lunch before your tour. Tours will be in groups of 8-10 and will be led by obstetric nursing staff.
