Cayuga Birthplace Open Early July

Ithaca, NY - After years in the planning and building, the new multi-million dollar maternity center at Cayuga Medical Center -- The New Cayuga Birthplace, will open early July. The state-of-the-art Cayuga Birthplace is located on the first floor of the medical center where it has six labor and delivery rooms, 12 post-partum rooms, a neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with four bassinets - in addition to four single family NICU rooms (these rooms allow for individualized and family centered infant care).  And new for our region: a Cesarean Section Surgical Operating Room within the Labor and Delivery Suite, making access in need seamless.


Other amenities will include: family areas with sleeper beds in each patient room, whirlpool tubs in each Labor and Delivery Room, generous access to natural light and views to the grounds, and also comfortable spa-like interiors that reference nature to create a warm and welcoming environment, all the way from garden to lake views.


“At the new Cayuga Birthplace, we want to exceed your expectations in patient care, service, hospitality, and knowledge. We hope that you let others know of your comfortable and enjoyable experience as a new parent here – make Cayuga Your Birthplace.” Said John Rudd, President and CEO.
