Woodland Heights Has Record Month
Woodland Heights Medical Center had a record number of births with over 100 babies born at the facility in the month of July. That's the highest number of births the facility has experienced in a one-month period in over 37 years according to Chief Nursing Officer for Woodland Heights Medical Center, Cathy Busbee.
The Women’s Center at Woodland Heights has become increasingly busier, as this is a 45% volume increase from last year. Last December, Woodland Heights opened the area’s first Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and which brought a higher level of care offered to this community and surrounding areas.
Additionally, the Women’s Services unit is a tenured team, with years of nursing experience. “We work extremely hard to stay abreast of the best practices in order to continue to deliver the highest level of care possible to our families. We take pride in the responsibility that comes with caring for these families,” said Busbee.
