The Maternity Department is located on the third level, next to the Operating Theatre, comprising:
• 3 consultation rooms
• 3 delivery suite

All patient rooms are equipped with medical functions (oxygen, suction, light, etc). Adjustable beds, bedside table, locker, TV, and telephones are in each room together with en-suite bath room with toilet, hand basin & shower. A bell call for nurses are located at the bedside and in each bathroom.
Our modern and comfortable delivery suites are fully equipped with all necessary medical equipment so that you can prepare for your baby’s arrival.
We encourage your husband or partner to be with you throughout your labour.

We recommend that you breastfeed your newborn as soon as possible.
