Beginning at 6:00 AM via ambulance, patients were transferred from the hospital’s Goodwood Blvd. location to the new hospital at 100 Woman's Way, which is one of the newest and most advanced women’s and infants’ medical facilities in the Gulf South.
More than 61 women and newborns and 60 NICU babies were transferred over a period of 10 hours. Additionally, 12 women gave birth on August 5 at the new hospital.
The first baby born at the new campus arrived at 12:54 PM and the last baby born at the Woman’s Goodwood location was at 1:23 PM.
The new Woman’s Hospital, one of the most advanced medical facilities in the Gulf South for women and infants, held a Ribbon Tying ceremony to symbolize its strengthening ties to the community during its first full day of regular operations.
Woman’s previous location, 9050 Airline Highway (at Goodwood Blvd.), stopped receiving new patients at 5:00 AM with the opening of the new campus. When the last patient left the Goodwood facility at 4:10 PM, the location closed permanently. The Goodwood campus is for sale.
A pioneer in women’s specialty hospitals, the newly constructed Woman’s Hospital is distinctive in design and function, and is the result of over 43 years of staff experience and the most advanced best practices in the medical industry. The new Woman’s is a strikingly modern facility that provides the highest levels of infant care and specializes in women’s medical and surgical needs all within a family-centered environment.
Occupying 100 acres at the corner of Airline Highway and Stumberg, near Pecue Lane, the hospital’s new address is 100 Woman’s Way. In addition to a nearly 500,000 square foot hospital, the campus includes a Physician Office Building, which houses over 75 physicians who have relocated from the old hospital and several that specifically chose to bring their practices to the new campus.
