The Noreen Stonor Drexel Birthing Center at Newport Hospital is a unique place, dedicated to one of the most joyous human experiences: the birth of a child.

We provide gentle, respectful, family-centered care, in tune with your individual needs and preferences. Our newly renovated facility offers attractive private suites—many with water views—and a peaceful, home-like environment, supported by state-of-the-art technology and medical expertise.

Our team includes board certified obstetricians, pediatricians, a certified nurse midwife, certified lactation consultants and a highly rated nursing staff with national certification in obstetrical nursing.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) is the leading national obstetrical organization that recommends standards for the operations of obstetrical units at hospitals throughout the United States. Hospital accrediting bodies such as The Joint Commission (TJC) look to ACOG for guidance in establishing the TJC Hospital Accreditation Standards. Obstetricians, anesthesiologists and certified nurse mid-wives at community hospitals throughout the United States, including Newport Hospital, may not be physically present in the hospital at all times. ACOG guidelines require that obstetricians and certified nurse midwives at community hospitals must be within 30 minutes of the hospital if not physically present. Newport Hospital is in full compliance with ACOG and TJC standards.

We're Baby-Friendly®!

The Noreen Stonor Drexel Birthing Center at Newport Hospital carries the prestigious Baby-Friendly® designation from the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Newport Hospital is recognized for providing an optimal environment for the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding. Hospitals are awarded this status only when trained, independent evaluators have determined that all hospital practices meet the rigorous Baby-Friendly® standards.
