For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Aspirus Riverview Hospital in Wisconsin Rapids will host a grand opening ceremony for the new Aspirus Riverview Family Birthplace on Jan. 31.
The new birthplace features 425-square-foot hotel-style suites with walk-in showers, whirlpool tubs, large flat-screen TVs, queen-size sofa beds, in-suite mini fridges, and dimmable lights. Rooms and hallways within the new birthplace feature beautiful and soothing nature themes from around Wisconsin.
“Our goal was to raise the standard for the birthing experience,” said Todd Burch, Aspirus Riverview CEO. “Our new birthplace will provide moms, families and loved ones with the most comfortable, inspirational and memorable experience possible.”
The center will open for newborn deliveries Feb. 14. Until then, the current Aspirus Riverview Family Birthplace will continue operation.
The new birthplace is located on the third floor of Aspirus Riverview Tower on the west end of the hospital campus. The celebration will include self-guided tours and light refreshments from 4- 6 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m.; best parking is in Lot 4 on the north side of Dewey Street.
