We also have a newly renovated 5 bed triage and 2 bed post-surgical recovery room. Labor and Delivery has 2 operating rooms with in the unit where we perform all of our own OB related surgical procedures including cesarean sections, tubal ligations, D &amp; C&rsquo;s, cerclage placements, etc. We are also affiliated with the department of genetics and perform genetic termination of pregnancies once approved by both genetic and OB department heads.&nbsp;<br /><br />We service both normal and high risk patients with multiple complications of pregnancy. The orientation for the Labor and Delivery unit is 14 weeks, in which you will be provided with numerous learning opportunities and be assigned your own preceptor during this period.
