North Shore Birth Center to Remain Open
Northeast Hospital Corporation Board of Trustees Approves Plan to
Continue Services

(Beverly, MA) — The Board of Trustees of Northeast Hospital
Corporation announced today that they have approved a plan that will
keep the North Shore Birth Center open and allow the Center to
continue to provide services to women who are low-risk and prefer a
birth center approach to pregnancy and childbirth.

Trustee members worked diligently with hospital administration and
clinicians to develop and approve a plan that would allow for the
continued operation of the Birth Center on the campus of Beverly
Hospital. The Board recognizes the national trend of birth center
closings due to rising costs and has decided to take a proactive
approach and modify how care will be delivered at the Birth Center.
Patients delivering at the Birth Center will now receive fetal
monitoring during their delivery.

“I am pleased that we were able to find a compromise that would allow
us to keep North Shore Birth Center open to the community,” said Dr.
Henry Ramini, President and CEO of Northeast Health System. “By making
this slight modification, we will be able to continue to provide this
valuable service.”

In a time when healthcare costs are increasing for all hospital
services, the Board of Trustees continually evaluates the programs and
services provided throughout Northeast Hospital Corporation to ensure
that the highest quality of hospital care is available and delivered
to the community.

“The Trustees believe in the care that is rendered at the Birth Center
and believe that it is a safe birthing alternative for expectant
mothers in our community,” said Nancy Palmer, Chairperson of the
Northeast Hospital Corporation Board of Trustees. “We recognize and
appreciate that the Birth Center is a special place for many families
and we are honored to continue to provide this unique birthing
alternative.”

The North Shore Birth Center (NSBC) became the first freestanding
birth center in the northeast when it opened in 1980. It is a nurse-
midwifery practice, in collaboration with OB/GYN physicians, situated
on the campus of Beverly Hospital. The Certified Nurse Midwives
(CNMs) at the birth center also provide GYN care. The NSBC’s CNMs
attend births at both the Birth Center and Beverly Hospital.

I'm giving birth there in May/June hopefully so that's the only real connection. I am seeing my midwives there as well.

I'm so happy!!

Great news! What was the little blurb about with providing electronic monitoring? Are they going to have to offer/encourage that to make the lawyers happy?

I'm not too sure what exactly they mean by the fetal monitoring since I know they already monitor with dopplers. I'm assuming this means EFM of some sort but it can't be on full time, I mean how would anyone give birth in the water if that were the case? This is my only concern. I go back on the 5th of January so I plan to find out then for sure.

that is awesome! Hopefully they'll reserve the EFM for questionable dopp reads.
