At Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, our women’s services unit is comprised of labor and delivery, postpartum and nursery. We work with skilled and experienced obstetricians/gynecologists to deliver more high risk babies than any other facility in the area. By partnering with the Fort Sanders Perinatal Center, we aid in improving pregnancy outcomes for high risk mothers especially those 35 years or older, with multiples, pregnancy complications, history of birth defects, and medical problems such as diabetes or hypertension.

Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center has earned the “BEST for Babies” award from the Tennessee Hospital Association and the Tennessee Department of Health. The award celebrates 18 hospitals across the state for their efforts to reduce infant deaths and improve the health of Tennessee’s newborns.

Women’s Services, is located on the sixth floor of the hospital. The department is a locked unit for the safety and privacy of our laboring patients.

6 North houses 32 beds that make up the post-partum and gynecological department. This area serves newborns, obstetrical and gynecological patients. Our labor and delivery department is a 12-bed unit, with two holding and post-anesthesia care rooms, three operating suites, a nursery stabilization area, and an additional five triage rooms. 6 West is home to an additional 12 rooms set up to provide care during a patient’s pregnancy or for labor and delivery if needed.

Our staff of Registered Nurses, OB Surgical Technicians, Certified Nurse Aides and Unit Secretaries make up our wonderful team. We average about 250 deliveries per month. As an RN in our labor and delivery unit, you will perform a variety of tasks such as ­­­­providing care for patients utilizing fetal and maternal monitoring equipment, managing the patient's pain including epidural and patient controlled analgesia administration, Assist physician during delivery, treatment, examination and surgical procedures, as well as providing patient and family education on labor, pain and newborn care. Because many of our moms are high risk, our ideal RN candidate will need to have excellent critical thinking skills as well as outstanding communication and interpersonal abilities.

As an organization, we want to grow our employees by promoting a culture of excellence and professionalism. Because of this, nurses on our unit are encouraged to becoming certified in labor and delivery. If you choose to become certified, our organization can help with the cost of your testing, as well as pay you a yearly bonus for taking the next step in your career.

We follow a 12-hour shift, rotating weekends/ holidays on a six-week schedule. Team members utilize a self-scheduling software, and employee requests are then considered during the scheduling process to balance and coordinate with the department’s needs.

Our goal is to provide excellent patient-centered care so both mom and baby are able to leave the hospital happy and healthy. If you are ready to start the satisfying journey as a Labor & Delivery nurse, then come work with us!
