"This was absolutely the perfect facility for us,'' said new mom Stephanie Armstreet, who delivered a high-risk, premature baby girl at CLRMC. "It had to be a facility that could handle both me and the baby. Wherever I was, in Antepartum, the Intensive Care Unit, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, I had the most unbelievable care."
We offer comprehensive services centered around your needs, providing a full range of expertise, from prenatal care and labor and delivery through postpartum care. Additionally, our 31-bed Obstetrics and Gynecology Unit provides premier post-operative care.
Prenatal Care (Antepartum)/Labor and Delivery
Approximately 4,000 babies are born annually at CLRMC - more than any other hospital southeast of the Texas Medical Center. This unit is dedicated to ensuring the comfort and well being of the expectant mother and her child with features including:
- 15-bed, high-risk Antepartum Unit

Recognizing the special needs of women immediately after the birth of their babies, CLRMC provides a dedicated Postpartum Care Unit. This is a 22-bed unit, with each bed located in a private room –thus creating a more peaceful surrounding that reduces stress while, maximizing the patient's comfort level and sense of privacy. Many rooms are equipped with Jacuzzi tubs.
Obstetrics and Gynecology
This 31-bed unit is staffed by extensively trained and experienced nurses and is equipped to provide premier post-operative care to thousands of women annually. Also, the unit accepts patients from other areas of the Women's Services spectrum, when additional accommodation is needed.
Caring and loving nursing staff will provide quality care to your new baby. All nursing staff have successfully completed the Neonatal Resuscitation Program, S.T.A.B.L.E. and breastfeeding education. Lactation consultants (IBCLC and Texas Breastfeeding Educators) are available to help you successfully begin to breastfeed and serve as resources during your stay.
