FORT OGLETHORPE, GA (WRCB) - The Board of Directors for Hutcheson Medical Center voted Monday to resume the hospital's Labor, Delivery, and inpatient pediatric services by the end of the calendar year.

In a news release, Hutcheson Medical Center cited “overwhelming demand from physicians and the community” for their decision.

“For years, Hutcheson has been known as “The Place Where Babies Come From” and we are extremely pleased to once again offer this service,” said Farrell Hayes, President and CEO of Hutcheson. “We had tremendous feedback from North Georgia physicians and citizens to reopen Labor and Delivery, and we are on track to do just that in time to deliver a New Year's baby.”

Hutcheson remodeled the Labor and Delivery unit to compete with other area birthing facilities. “Today, it's not enough to provide excellent quality medical care. Mothers and families want an aesthetically pleasing environment with modern amenities in which to give birth, and our new wing offers just that,” stated Sandra Siniard, Vice President of Patient Care at Hutcheson.
