Special Delivery: Grand View Health Nurse’s Unforgettable Day

May 7th, 2021

Managing “close calls” isn’t unusual at a hospital that’s delivered babies for more than 100 years. But even the most impatient infants typically “stay put” for the quick wheelchair ride to the Labor & Delivery Unit.

And then, there’s the story told in this video by nurse Laurie McLaughlin, from Grand View’s emergency department.

While most deliveries at Grand View Health aren’t quite this unforgettable, each and every one is memorable in its own special way. Talk to moms in our community and most will share how happy they are to stay close to home and enjoy the added peace of mind that comes with delivering where there’s also a Level ll Neonatal Intensive Care Unit staffed by a team from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). And as babies become kids, our partnership to provide the best care possible continues with our CHOP pediatric unit.

Our care for babies also includes a wonderfully talented team of obstetrician/gynecologists and everyone who works at the Birth and Family Center at Grand View Hospital.

Perhaps McLaughlin said it best about working at Grand View Health: “We’re ready for anything and anyone who comes through our doors.”
