Plumas District Hospital (PDH) invited parents of babies born in the years 2016-2019 to a baby reunion during the Children’s Fair May 18, 2019.
“We hope that the reunion will give families an opportunity to reconnect with their nurses and doctor,” said Community Relations Coordinator Wendy Stewart. “We are looking forward to seeing how the babies have grown and developed.” The event was so well received by the community Plumas District Hospital will host the event annually.
PDH presently has three family practitioners providing obstetric care - Erin Barnes MD, Alexandra Hunt MD, and Paige Lewis MD. All three PDH physicians accept new maternity patients.
All obstetric staff, including all nurses and physicians, are certified and compliant with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) and the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) standards. When expectant mothers choose PDH, they will enjoy the benefit of personalized care from their own physician throughout all stages of pregnancy, delivery and for their newborn child.
PDH was recognized in 2018 for quality obstetrical practices when it earned the BETA Healthcare Group Award of Excellence – an award offered for achieving 100 percent compliance in the ‘Quest for Zero’ preventable birth injuries initiative.
PDH offers 24 hour obstetric services, and is the only Plumas County hospital providing obstetrics services. In addition, the hospital offers childbirth classes for expectant individuals several times per year. During the six-week session, instructors provide information about the process of labor & delivery, the role of the labor coach and the use of relaxation/breathing methods. Breastfeeding techniques, newborn care, infant CPR and infant car seat safety are also discussed.
