Obstetrics & Newborn Care

Obstetrics & Newborn Care

Butler County Health Care Center strives to provide the same level of care as a large obstetric facility, but with the small facility friendliness and attention to detail. This is accomplished through years of experience, staff training and up-to-date technology. At Butler County Health Care Center expect to receive superior prenatal care, labor care and post care.

Each member of the Butler County Health Care Center medical staff, registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN) and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA) are certified in Neonatal Advance Life Support. All registered nurses complete a fetal monitor training course at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center and an annual fetal monitor strip interpretation course.

The birth of a baby is truly an unforgettable experience. The staff at Butler County Health Care Center is honored each time they are able to share this experience with a family.
