A family-centered approach to childbirth in a comfortable setting is offered at Midtown Medical Center. Our services extend to special needs and high-risk deliveries as well. Midtown Medical Center currently serves as one of only six regional perinatal centers in Georgia, providing critical care to infants from 21 counties in southwest Georgia and Lee and Russell counties in Alabama.
The Labor Delivery Recovery (LDR) birthing suites allow the mother, support person and baby to stay together in a warm environment throughout labor, delivery and recovery before transferring to another room for family-centered care. The high-risk nursery for critically ill infants is located on the same floor as the labor and delivery department.
Should the need arise, you can be assured that Midtown provides the expertise to address complications that may occur before, during, and after birth. As one of only six regional perinatal centers in Georgia, we offer the region’s only NICU to treat critically ill newborn babies, extremely premature newborns, newborns facing congenital issues, and newborns requiring surgical intervention. There is even a high-risk nursery for critically ill infants located on the same floor as the labor and delivery unit. The very best care for mom and baby is right down the hall.
When it’s time for your baby to be born, Columbus Regional Medical Group has experienced obstetricians on staff. There are also maternal fetal medicine specialists who treat the mother and child before birth, as well as neonatologists should your baby need extra attention after birth.
Dr. Fortson is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology and maternal fetal medicine.View Profile
