The fourth floor of the medical center is dedicated to childbirth and gynecological care. Our recently renovated floor offers comfortable and private rooms where mothers may go through the labor, delivery and recovery process. The Mother/Baby Unit offers couplet care, allowing babies to room-in with their mothers to enhance the bonding process. These rooms also offer sleeper sofas for a family member.
Maury Regional has 24-hour anesthesiology coverage as well as two fully-equipped and staffed operating rooms where caesarian sections take place.
Neonatal Intensive Care
While many newborns are at home with their parents in a day or so, some babies need a higher level of care. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides care for newborns with a wide variety of conditions, including prematurity, infection and respiratory problems. Our neonatology physicians and neonatal nurse practitioners are provided by the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, one of the most trusted names in children's services. Our highly skilled nurses and respiratory therapists are trained to provide a higher level of care for premature and high-risk babies. There is comfort in knowing that parents can stay close to home during their baby's extended stay. Parents are welcome to be with their infants and are encouraged to visit their baby often to aid in the bonding process. For more about visitation and other family-related information, click here.
Maury Regional Medical Center promotes and supports that breast milk is the ideal nutrition for babies. Studies have shown that babies who are breastfed are healthier throughout their lives. To assist new mothers as they begin to breastfeed, we offer a highly trained nursing staff and board-certified lactation consultants. In addition to assisting mothers while they are in our care, we also offer support after you have gone home with your baby. To schedule an appointment with a lactation consultant, call 931.490.7074.

During your stay, you
will be given the opportunity to have your baby’s photo taken and posted
on our password-protected Online
Nursery. This is a simple, no-hassle way to share first pictures of your
new arrival with friends and family.
All photos and accompanying information are password-protected so only those to whom you give permission can view your baby’s photos.
For children, a hospital stay can prove challenging. At Maury Regional Medical Center, we have experienced pediatric trained nursing staff and physicians board-certified in internal medicine and pediatrics. These skilled professionals do everything possible to alleviate anxiety while providing expert care for our younger patients on the third floor of the medical center.
