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.

Because many of our moms are high risk, our ideal RN candidate will need to have excellent critical thinking skills as well as outstanding communication and interpersonal abilities.

Because of this, nurses on our unit are encouraged to becoming certified in labor and delivery. If you choose to become certified, our organization can help with the cost of your testing, as well as pay you a yearly bonus for taking the next step in your career.
