Birthing Suites

Franciscan Family Birth Centers at four Washington locations, St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way, St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw and Highline Medical Center in Burien, feature birthing suites designed to make your birth experience comfortable and positive.

Birthing suites in all Franciscan Family Birth Centers provide:

  • Private, beautifully appointed labor and delivery rooms with roomy sleeper chairs
  • Spacious postpartum rooms to accommodate visitors and offer amenities to care for your new baby
  • “Rooming-in” accommodations for you, your baby, and support person

At the Highline Birth Center, labor, delivery, recovery and post-delivery all take place in the same room.

And of course the superior medical technology and caring, personal attention you’ve come to know from Franciscan facilities, such as state-of-the-art fetal monitoring, electronic medical records, and easy access to operating rooms for a swift transition should a cesarean section be needed. The birth experience you choose is supported by our dedicated team of the region’s most skilled obstetricians and labor and delivery nurses.
