Olean General Hospital

OB/GYN - Maternity - Labor & Delivery

The Obstetrics and Gynecology Department (OB/GYN) provides complete privacy with individual rooms.

Four Labor, Delivery, Recovery Rooms - each with a private bathroom, shower, birthing bed, newborn bassinet, television, rocking chair and recliner.

These spacious rooms allow the coach to remain with the patient throughout the labor process. A central monitoring system tracks fetal well-being; 24-hour epidural services are always available.

Approximately 750 deliveries are performed each year. A cesarean-section delivery room is conveniently accessible off of labor and delivery. The family can enjoy a quiet waiting area with a window view of the newborn nursery.

Prior to being discharged, nurses offer education on newborn home care, and all OB nursing staff are available to assist breastfeeding mothers during their stay. All babies receive a hearing screening with a new ALGO 5 AABR hearing screener. This is the gold standard in newborn hearing screening. Childbirth classes and breastfeeding classes are also offered at OGH and are taught by members of the OB nursing staff.
