Whether exploring fertility treatment options, preparing to give birth, or staying ahead of your breast health with regular mammograms, Geisinger’s Women’s Health specialists are with you each step of the way.
Labor & Delivery: Full service maternity care
Our Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Post-Partum (LDRP) suites provide a private, warm and relaxed setting to welcome your new arrival. All the while, you and your family can rest assured that the latest obstetric technology is immediately available. Family and friends can see your newborn in our nursery or online at our iNursery.
All of our labor and delivery services are located in a private wing, with suites designed to room both mom and baby to enhance the bonding relationship. To enrich the experience for the whole family, a team of childbirth educators and lactation consultations help educate new moms and their loved ones on how to care for their newborn. And a variety of Childbirth Clinics are regularly available — visit Geisinger Community Calendar for a full schedule.
For premature newborns or for an infant with a serious medical condition, Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center opened the first neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in Luzerne County in October 2011 with pediatric experts ready to care your baby in need.
Janet Weis Children’s Hospital Pediatric Services Unit is an extension of Geisinger’s Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville, the only rural children’s hospital completely dedicated to the care of children.

- Digital mammography
- Stereotactic breast biopsy
- DXA bone density scans
