Great care is no small thing. When you choose Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – McKinney, you’ll deliver your baby in a supportive, family-centered environment surrounded by a team dedicated to helping you achieve safe, comfortable childbirth. Local patients, Berkeley and Stuti, decided to have their babies at BSW – McKinney, and they agree it was one of the best decisions they made during their pregnancies.
Berkely: “They made me feel like I was their only patient.”
“It was my first baby and the first time I was staying in a hospital. I felt anxious going in, but my anxiety quickly melted away,” Berkeley shares. “The environment was peaceful, the nurses and staff were calm, knowledgeable, and supportive, and they gave me their undivided attention. It never felt rushed or impersonal. They kept my husband and I informed and talked me through everything.’”
Berkeley enjoyed her private birthing room with décor more fitting to a hotel suite than a hospital room, and the ability to in-room with her infant. In-rooming is where postnatal mothers and healthy infants have the option to stay together in the same room. She added, “Even the food was good, which surprised us, and we appreciated the all-day, full-service menu.”
Recommending BSW – McKinney, Berkeley adds, “From the overall comfort and amenities to the level of personalized care we received, I can’t say enough good things about our experience there.”
Stuti: “Seamless, supportive, and helpful care every step of the way.”
“Our experience was excellent from beginning to end, and we felt completely cared for,” says Stuti, who chose to have her daughter at BSW – McKinney. Her son was also born there. “The nurses were all so lovely and friendly as well as accessible and knowledgeable, and the delivery process was calm and easy.”
Stuti enjoyed her spacious, well-equipped room and the food. “There was a sofa bed with sheets and a pillow for my husband, the room’s heat setting was adjustable, we enjoyed watching our favorite shows on TV, and the food menu was great with lots of choices for both my husband and I.”
Stuti recommends Baylor Scott & White – McKinney, saying, “Having had two babies at the hospital and a great experience both times, I absolutely recommend Baylor Scott & White – McKinney.”
