Forrest General's Women and Children's Services offers Caring, Quality and Convenience – all in one location W hat makes Forrest General's Women and Children's Services different from other hospitals? Not only will you be treated by the most experienced and caring staff in South Mississippi, but patients can rest assured the quality of care is being provided by one of the best hospitals in the nation for Women's Health. Forrest General's Women and Children's Services is conveniently located on one foor, with easy access from the 4th foor parking garage and one dedicated entrance with designated parking for Women and their families. "Families become familiar with the Women and Children's Service entrance and all it has to offer for each stage of life. This creates loyal customers for a lifetime," said Tangela Boutwell, director of Women and Children's Services at Forrest General. Families no longer have to worry about going to one location before surgery, another foor for surgery, or a third location for recovery. Once inside, there is no need to leave the foor – it's like a women and children's hospital within a hospital. The women and children's specialty foor includes The Family Birthplace, the family-centered Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Pediatrics and a brand new Women's Surgery Center. The Women's Surgery Center is a surgery suite dedicated to women's gynecological health. It is aesthetically pleasing with a warm and personal environment. This dedicated private area also provides skilled nursing care, pre-operative and post- operative care and convenience – all in one location. "It's great for our patients and a more effcient way for us to provide the care and services needed, because everything is centrally located on one foor," said Jeff Hudson, M.D., who specializes in Obstetrics & Gynecology. In 2014, Forrest General was ranked Top 10 percent in the Nation for Medical Excellence in Women's Health by CareChex ® , a division of COMPARION, an independent company recognizing the nation's best performers on various measures of quality relating to process of care, outcomes, and patient satisfaction.
