Obstetrics and Gynaecology Unit

The Complex Operating Unit of Gynaecology and Obstetrics provides its services with the mission of:

  • Taking care of the woman and the couple in the birth path from the first weeks of pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period, offering differentiated care modalities for physiological pregnancy and pregnancy at risk;
  • Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the pathology of the female genital system using traditional techniques and the most modern endoscopic techniques.

Inside the OUC, located on the 1st floor of Scale B of the Hospital, there are the Inpatient Department and the Obstetric-Gynecological Outpatient Clinics, managed by the Medical, Obstetrics and Nursing team. The labor-birth block is on the same plane near the Operating Rooms, in order to guarantee the highest level of safety.

The Nursery, where newborns are welcomed, is located in rooms adjacent to the Department and therefore easily accessible by Mothers during breastfeeding hours or for any need related to the care of children.
