RANCHO MIRAGE —Mere hours after the Eisenhower Family Birth Center officially opened on May 27,  it welcomed its first newborn, a girl, Kaedyn Clous. Khristina Clous gave birth to Kaedyn at 6:58 p.m.

To mark the occasion, the Center presented the family with a gift basket of branded Eisenhower Family Birth Center items, a gift from JadaBug’s Kid’s Boutique, and Khristina received a special celebratory meal.

This state-of-the-art, 50,000-square-foot facility delivers everything needed for a safe, comfortable and transformative experience, including:

  • 14 private labor, delivery, recovery, postpartum (LDRP) rooms
  • 8 private-rooms in our Level II newborn intensive care unit (NICU)
  • 2 dedicated operating rooms
  • 7 postpartum rooms and 4 antepartum rooms

Babies tend to arrive on their own schedule, which is why the Eisenhower Family Birth Center has a full range of experts available around-the-clock. The Center also has a surgical team at the ready for cesareans or other procedures in its fully equipped operating rooms.

The Center’s dedicated team includes:

  • Hospital-based obstetricians (OBs), also known as laborists
  • Certified obstetric and neonatal nurses
  • Perinatologists (high-risk pregnancy specialists) affiliated with UC San Diego Health
  • Neonatologists (specialists in the care of newborns)
  • Endocrinology services for patients with gestational diabetes
  • Family wellness support offered through Behavioral Health and Addiction Medicine
  • Anesthesiologists available 24/7
  • Lactation specialists

To keep patients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, every person is screened before entering the hospital, there are limitations on visits, face masks are required, and physical distancing is practiced.
