Why Deliver Your Baby at Carle
If you’re having a baby, you can count on the Carle Women’s Health Institute to give you a truly personal experience. Each year we deliver more than 2,700 babies at Carle hospitals, and are constantly working to make the experience as individual as you and your baby.
We are certified as a Level III Perinatal Service Center and are recognized as a Baby-Friendly USA facility. And at Carle Richland Memorial Hospital, you can have the comfort of delivering close to home, with providers who are experts in their field, and are connected to an award winning program.
If you believe you are in labor please call your provider’s office (if it is during office hours) or Labor and Delivery at (217) 383-3305 (if after office hours or on a weekend). A nurse will be able to help you determine the best time and place for evaluation, which could be in your provider’s office or at the hospital. After hours you will be asked to arrive at the Emergency Department and will be directed to the appropriate unit.
