Northern Nevada Sierra Medical Center announces maternal-child services (sponsored)


Opening spring 2022 the new hospital will welcome expecting parents

Soon to be the region’s newest full-service hospital built in over a century, Northern Nevada Sierra Medical Center (SMC), will open to the public spring 2022. The new hospital has announced it will offer maternal-child services including labor and delivery, a neonatal intensive care unit, pediatrics and additional services catered to women and children. 

“When Northern Nevada Sierra Medical Center opens its doors to the public next year, we invite expecting parents to experience a luxuriously designed maternity unit created for mom and baby,” said Alan Olive, chief executive officer at Northern Nevada Sierra Medical Center. “Our hospital will have the latest technology and services that make it the preferred choice for expecting parents. Everything from expansive private suites, views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, concierge services and accommodations for visiting family members and top-rated nursing staff, we are proud to introduce this service to the region.” 

The new maternity unit will include spacious labor and delivery suites that are 100-percent private. Aligned with Northern Nevada Medical Center in Sparks, Nev., SMC will carry on the tradition of all-private patient rooms to promote healing and comfort. In addition, parents will have access to labor tubs and a concierge list of comforts. The unit will have cesarean surgical suites and comfortable post-partum suites with room-in features for new parents to stay with their baby in a home-like environment. 

At opening, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at SMC will offer level one NICU services to newborns born prematurely, who may need specialized treatment. Staffed by neonatologists, the unit will offer the latest technology and services to families.

OB-GYN Associates has announced their cooperation to care for patients at the new maternity unit. They are the largest obstetric and gynecologic group in the region and have served local families for 37 years. 

The team of skilled providers, in collaboration with SMC’s leadership and clinical teams, will develop a high-quality labor and delivery program centered on mom and baby.

“We welcome Northern Nevada Sierra Medical Center’s investment in our community as it represents an important milestone in advancing women and children’s health across northern Nevada,” said Peter DeKay, MD, FACOG at OB-GYN Associates. “It will bring renewed focus to ensuring moms can access top-quality obstetrics care. We look forward to celebrating the first child born at the new hospital and all the children we will soon welcome to our community.”
