Ascension Saint Thomas announced Nov. 18 it has entered the first of two construction phases on a new “hospital within a hospital” for women and newborn patients at Saint Thomas Midtown.

The renovation work for the Saint Thomas Hospital for Women at Midtown features input from families, patients and physicians with a mission to create an “enhanced” labor experience, according to a news release.

“The development of the Hospital for Women at Midtown is the result of extensive research and dialogue between Saint Thomas Midtown leadership, physician partners and clinical teams,” said Kristen Toth, vice president of women’s, children’s and oncology services at Ascension Saint Thomas, in the release. “With this investment, we are confident that we can reach more women and continue to offer high-caliber care.”

The first construction phase, which began this fall, includes a new surgery center that will offer specialty surgical programs for women, according to the release. The second phase of construction will modernize the hospital’s labor and delivery program by offering a new, private entrance to the hospital.

Once constructed, the space will also house a new emergency department designed for the care of pregnant women, an obstetrics intensive care unit and expanded services for the neonatal intensive care unit. Additional amenities planned for the facility include dedicated parking, valet parking and family spaces in a “hotel-style environment,” the release said.

More babies are delivered annually at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital than at any other Tennessee hospital, according to Ascension Saint Thomas. Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital is located at 2000 Church St., Nashville.
