MCA is honored to be ChristianaCare’s design partner in the redesign and renovation of the newly renamed Family Birth Center at Union Hospital in Cecil County, Maryland.

“The beautiful, renovated center, designed to be warm and inviting, will provide an exceptional experience for our laboring patients and their families,” said Amy Marston, MBA, MPH, campus executive director. Approximately 450 babies are born each year at Union Hospital.

The redesigned 14-bed unit includes larger maternity suites and upgraded technology. The unit comprises three postpartum rooms, eight labor and delivery rooms, three private triage rooms, a tub room to assist with labor, and a nursery. The Family Birth Center begins taking patients in January 2024.
