Family Life Center

You can expect more from the Family Life Center at Schneck Medical Center. Our staff is dedicated to helping you welcome your newborn into your family in a remarkably personal way. And our state-of-the-art facility is home to many of the finest physicians, nurses, and technicians in southern Indiana. So when you're expecting the best possible care-we deliver.

It only takes a moment to see what makes the Family Life Center different. It looks and feels much more like home than a traditional hospital. With beautifully appointed birthing rooms, state-of-the-art equipment, and family-friendly practices, the comfort and happiness of new mothers is our focus.

Here, the entire childbirth experience takes place in your private room with your family and friends by your side. In addition to five labor and delivery rooms, the Family Life Center has a suite and recovery room for C-sections, and a separate pediatric/adolescent unit.

Your baby stays close to you from the moment of birth until time to go home. Baby's first bath... being weighed for the first time... being measured... All the beautiful things that happen when your baby is born will happen at your bedside, and you can share them with whomever you wish. Fathers, siblings, grand-parents, and friends are always welcome.

Your family and friends the world over can take a look at your baby by coming to the nursery of our Web site. Simply e-mail them our Web address and a special password (if requested by parents), and they'll be able to see a digital photograph of your pride and joy.

If you would like to have your baby in our Family Life Center, please ask your doctor for a pre-registration packet, complete the questionnaire, and bring it or mail it to us at your earliest convenience. For more information about our facilities, please give us a call at (812) 522-0435 or e-mail us. We will be pleased to arrange a tour and answer your questions.
