At Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, our women’s services unit is comprised of labor and delivery, postpartum and nursery. We work with skilled and experienced obstetricians/gynecologists to deliver more high risk babies than any other facility in the area. By partnering with the Fort Sanders Perinatal Center, we aid in improving pregnancy outcomes for high risk mothers especially those 35 years or older, with multiples, pregnancy complications, history of birth defects, and medical problems such as diabetes or hypertension.

Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center has earned the “BEST for Babies” award from the Tennessee Hospital Association and the Tennessee Department of Health. The award celebrates 18 hospitals across the state for their efforts to reduce infant deaths and improve the health of Tennessee’s newborns.

The Labor and Delivery unit at Fort Sanders Regional consists of five triage rooms for women experiencing problems or signs of early labor, 7 ante-partum suites for women who need extended hospital stays before delivery, and 12 labor and delivery rooms. We also offer 6 LDRP suites, for mothers preferring to labor, deliver, recover and welcome their newborns all in the same room.

Our staff of Registered Nurses, OB Surgical Technicians, Certified Nurse Aides and Unit Secretaries make up our wonderful team. We average about 250 deliveries per month.

Our goal is to provide excellent patient-centered care so both mom and baby are able to leave the hospital happy and healthy. If you are ready to start the satisfying journey as a Labor & Delivery nurse, then come work with us!
