Last week, Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital announced plans for construction of an all-new $4.9 million, 8,920 square foot Family Birthing Center, to be located where the current unit is on the second floor of the hospital. Of the total project cost, $1.3 million was donated by community members, including hospital physicians, employees and volunteers.

The new Family Birthing Center will feature three labor, delivery and recovery rooms with in-room bathrooms, two new whirlpool tubs, five post-partum rooms, a new security system to further enhance current security for newborns, and an array of amenities and educational opportunities for new parents.

The Family Birthing Center at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital is being built by The Christman Company. The project is slated to be completed in Fall 2019.
