OB & Nursery




General Information:

At Cogdell Memorial Hospital, we encourage you to have a natural experience by holding your baby skin-to-skin right after birth, and in the hours and days following.  Your baby will not be whisked away to perform assessments and tests, all of these can be done while you and your baby bond – right from the minute of birth while your baby lies on your chest.   



We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
OB is a locked, secure area that requires badge access for entry.


Phone & Security


We place identification bands on infants and parents immediately at birth. This, along with a number of other security measures, ensures the safety of you and your newborn during your hospital stay.
