Perinatal Evaluation and Treatment Unit

All mothers in labor, including scheduled cesarean birth or labor induction, proceed directly to the third floor. Take the front elevator to the third floor and register at the security desk. Security will then direct you to the Perinatal Evaluation and Treatment Unit (or “PET” Unit). If you are there for a labor check, both an OB nurse and an OB resident will make the assessment. They will be in communication with your obstetrician, who will determine if you will be admitted or sent home. Please make arrangements ahead of time for childcare for siblings when coming to the hospital for labor and delivery.
