Eisenhower Family Birth Center Welcomes its First Newborn — a Girl
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.
