Center for Women & Babies

The Athens campus of Starr Regional Medical Center has been providing services for the unique physical, social and educational needs of women since 1973. The Center for Women & Babies provides a complete program of medical, surgical and educational services to accommodate the unique needs of female patients. We take pride in providing exceptional care for women, close to home.

Expecting Parents

Our Center for Women & Babies delivers more than 400 babies a year and continues to offer sensitive, personalized health services to each woman, baby, and father. Fathers, siblings and grandparents are invited to participate in welcoming new babies. However, we ask that you choose only two - three individuals to be with mom in the actual delivery. This is to ensure the safety of mom and baby. Parental education is also available to new parents. Other benefits include:

  • Our patient satisfaction scores exceed the national average
  • Free childbirth classes for anyone delivering here
  • 24-hour anesthesia coverage
  • Professional photography available
  • Wireless Internet access available to patients and visitors

Expectant parents need not look any further for the perfect place to welcome your newest family member to the world. The Staff of the Center for Women & Babies are compassionate and dedicated to providing families with an exceptional birthing experience.

Maternity Professionals

Our team of maternity professionals includes board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists or certified nurse midwife, whom you can choose to help deliver your baby.  Our nursing team strives to make each delivery the best it can be and takes care of each infant with professionalism that comes from years of experience and TLC that comes from the heart.
