Each room is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, a delivery bed, a twin sofa sleeper, a television and a DVD player.

Texas Ten Step Program
The Texas Ten Step (TTS) Program was developed by the Texas Department of Health (now the Texas Department of State Health Services) in collaboration with The Texas Hospital Association in 1999. It was established to help hospitals and birthing centers support mothers in breastfeeding before, during and after delivery, with a goal of having 80% of all new mothers breastfeeding at discharge.
Pre-Registration and Administration
When you’re experiencing labor, the last thing you want to deal with is paperwork. To avoid this, we encourage you to pre-register at least two months prior to your due date. Simply complete our online pre-registration form. We will take care of the rest!
Upon arrival at the hospital before you deliver, proceed directly to the maternity unit on the second floor. Our staff will help you get settled and comfortable in your room.
Once you deliver your new baby, you will be moved to a private room on our postpartum unit. The postpartum rooms provide a peaceful atmosphere as you recover and begin to prepare for your return home. Your doctor will determine when you may be discharged from the hospital.
Medical City McKinney’s full-service newborn nursery is located just around the corner from your labor and delivery room. You can choose to keep your baby with you, or our specially-trained nursery nurses will care for your baby while you rest. The choice is yours. Rest assured, should your baby need special care or if Mom needs some time, Medical City McKinney can provide such care in our newborn nursery.
New Mom’s Education
Our hospital offers education classes to assist you in preparing for your new baby.
Prenatal educators and lactation consultants are available to provide you guidance and support if you choose to breastfeed. If you and your baby should need assistance after you leave the hospital, you are welcome to give us a call.
