Care for Pregnancy and Postpartum-related Obstetrical Issues
Palmdale Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce its new Obstetrical Emergency Department (OB-ED) in The Birth Place. Our OB-ED is equipped with triage beds where board-certified obstetricians and certified labor and delivery nurses specially trained in treating high-risk pregnancies provide evaluations, assessments and medical screening exams for pregnant women who are in need of immediate care. The OB-ED helps to ensure that patients receive timely, specialized care by providers experienced in managing obstetrical emergencies.
The OB-ED provides pregnant women with immediate access to a physician at all hours. Whether patients present with a life-endangering emergency or a less urgent need, patients are evaluated and treated quickly and efficiently by a highly trained obstetrics physician.

Comprehensive Maternity Services
Our OB-ED not only provides emergency care access to maternity patients in our community, but also offers added reassurance for expectant patients who may be coping with chronic health concerns. We understand that health conditions such as diabetes, obesity or hypertension can lead to complications and premature births. Our OB-ED responds to these healthcare concerns and gives you access to emergency OB treatment in a setting that is dedicated to your special obstetrical needs.
Here at The Birth Place, we offer comprehensive services and dedicated care to our maternity patients. This encompasses an experienced team of OB hospitalists here 24/7, dedicated anesthesiologists, specialty-trained nurses, a level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and a partnership with Huntington Memorial Hospital should our smallest infants require a higher level of care.
If you are at least 20 weeks pregnant and feel you may have an OB emergency, please come directly to The Birth Place. Our friendly staff will check you into our OB-ED where you will be cared for by our highly skilled team of OB-ED providers and nurses.
Palmdale Regional Medical Center has been providing services to our community for over 12 years, and our recently opened obstetrics and maternity unit is an added service to our community.
