Since the opening of the new hospital in 2011, Wright Memorial Hospital in Trenton has experienced a 30 percent increase in births.

In 2011, 155 babies were delivered at the hospital. That number increased to 194 babies in 2012, and 219 in 2013. Comprehensive prenatal care and education offered at the hospital are some of the factors contributing to the growth.

“Wright Memorial continues to expand and improve on best practices such as ensuring that each OB patient meets the national goal of no deliveries prior to 39 weeks, which improves the development of the babies being born,” Pamela Ralls, M.D., a Wright Memorial obstetrician, said. “With the move to a new hospital, we were equipped with state-of-the-art rooms for labor and delivery, and newer equipment. And, in 2013, Dr. Guarin and I started monthly pregnancy classes. We’ve expanded those classes in 2014 to include a more robust Pregnancy Education Seminar offered for free six times throughout the year.”

In addition, Wright Memorial has expanded its services into nearby counties. Esgar Guarin, M.D., another obstetrician at the hospital, has started a monthly OB clinic in Jamesport and in Milan.
For CEO Gary Jordan, births are an important indicator for future growth in other departments throughout the hospital.

“A strong OB department feeds into all departments of the hospital,” Jordan said. ”It brings new families into the hospital and Physicians’ Group. If they are pleased with their birth experience, they bring the whole family back for care over the years. It’s always been our goal to provide top quality care for the entire family. Many times, that starts with delivering their babies.”
