Methodist Mansfield Medical Center’s Maternity Ward won the “focus on excellence” Reader’s Choice Award for 2011.
Based on survey feedback from Focus Daily News readers in Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, Glenn Heights. Lancaster, Midlothian, Waxahachie and surrounding Southern Dallas and North Ellis County communities Methodist Mansfield’s Labor and Delivery Department was rated among the best in the community.
Survey respondents ranked the quality of services, reliability and functionality throughout more than 20 Best Southwest communities. The awards were sponsored by the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce and Focus Daily News.
“We are honored that hundreds of people across southeast Dallas, Ellis and Johnson counties are choosing Methodist Mansfield for childbirth, obstetric care, gynecological surgery, and women’s services,” said Methodist Mansfield Chief Nursing Officer Jeanne Reeves. “We are pleased to have a caring and dedicated nursing staff who help ensure our newest resident get a healthy start in life.”
Methodist Mansfield is currently undergoing a $9 million facility expansion of women services to meet the needs of the growing communities it serves.
The expansion will enhance the hospital’s ability to provide unparalleled clinical care for obstetric services, including high-risk moms and babies in a patient-centered modern environment.
The new 9,413-square-foot women’s services addition is anticipated to take approximately nine months to complete.
The renovation and expansion will result in six additional Labor and Delivery suites for a total of 13, enlarged family waiting rooms, expanded antepartum areas, expanded medical staff and nursing staff work space and significantly enlarged cesarean recovery and support areas.
The entire second floor will be dedicated to hospital services that care for babies and mothers from pre-birth up.
More than 3,000 babies have been born at Methodist Mansfield since the hospital opened five years ago.
Organizations and community members are encouraged to create a meaningful legacy by taking advantage of special naming opportunities throughout the new women’s pavilion.
Gifts can be made to honor a new mom, honor a dynamic leader, recognize a physician or memorialize a special life. The campaign is open to all individuals, companies and organization who wish to contribute.
