Maternity Center at Mercy Council Bluffs

At the CHI Health Maternity Center at Mercy, our friendly, experienced staff will make you feel right at home. Each birthing suite is more like a master bedroom than a hospital room, complete with sofa, rocking chair, TV, DVD player, wireless internet access (Wi-fi), and Jacuzzi bathtub. You can also have your baby stay in our full service nursery any time you need to rest.
