2B specializes in the care of women. We are a 22 private bed unit that cares for antepartum, postpartum and gynecology patients. Our average daily census consists of 16 patients with average length of stay of two days. We use a team approach to nursing care consisting of nurses, certified nurse assistants and unit clerks. We also work with the Nursery to provide a safe, caring environment for both mother and baby. We have a full time and a part time lactation consultant available for breastfeeding patients. In addition we have an outpatient lactation program designed for patients after discharge if necessary. 2B nursing staff have also completed continuing education training on beginning breastfeeding in the hospital and breastfeeding management for mom and the newborn.
