Penn Highland Healthcare Provides the Best Start for Babies

The Maternal and Child Centers at Penn Highlands DuBois and Penn Highlands Elk provide everything for a safe, comfortable labor experience – including the latest in fetal heart monitoring, 3D and 4D women's ultrasound, anesthesia equipment and delivery beds. And medical equipment is integrated into the surroundings to preserve the comfort and intimacy of a home-like environment.

The Center also offers the following services to assist patients to make the birthing experience as comfortable as possible – birthing balls, Lamaze support, position changes, massage and epidurals.

Low key and homelike, childbirth in our newly designed birthing rooms is according to the patient’s plan and designed for comfort. Whether the pregnancy is perfectly normal or if a patient needs specialized care, we have the experts and technology to meet the need.
