Maternity and Neonatal Units

Until 2006 the hospital provided neonatal intensive and special care associated with in-patient maternity services. Births at the hospital were often those that could involve complications; uncomplicated births were usually at home or at the nearby Buckredden Maternity Home in Kilwinning. People who were born in the area are often interested in the hospital for genealogical reasons.

Ayrshire Paediatric services were centralised at Crosshouse in July 2006.

Maternity services moved to the new Ayrshire Maternity Unit at Crosshouse Hospital in August 2006.

Famous quotes containing the words units and/or maternity:

    Even in harmonious families there is this double life: the group life, which is the one we can observe in our neighbour’s household, and, underneath, another—secret and passionate and intense—which is the real life that stamps the faces and gives character to the voices of our friends. Always in his mind each member of these social units is escaping, running away, trying to break the net which circumstances and his own affections have woven about him.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    I find it profoundly symbolic that I am appearing before a committee of fifteen men who will report to a legislative body of one hundred men because of a decision handed down by a court comprised of nine men—on an issue that affects millions of women.... I have the feeling that if men could get pregnant, we wouldn’t be struggling for this legislation. If men could get pregnant, maternity benefits would be as sacrosanct as the G.I. Bill.
    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)
