The Mother Baby Center at Mercy Hospital
The Mother Baby Center at Mercy Hospital with Children’s Minnesota opened in July 2015 and offers the gamut of obstetric services and features the only Level II special care nursery in the North Metro with private patient rooms. The creation of this facility allowed Unity Hospital to
close its birth center in anticipation of expanding mental health and addiction services.
To meet the growing need for mental health and addiction services, the Unity campus is undergoing a number of changes. The fourth floor, former home to the Birth Center, is being renovated to create a 40-bed inpatient mental health unit, Allina Health Mental
Health is moving to a larger space on site, and the Emergency Department will be renovated to better meet the needs of patients with mental health conditions. The 2016 Crystal Ball proceeds were dedicated to this consolidation of mental health and addiction services. Learn more by watching the video
