The Vision of the PCH District is to be the
Best Place to Get Care and the Best Place to Give Care.
A Warm, Inviting Birth Place
The birth of your baby will be one of the most joyous and cherished moments in your life. Choosing where this special event will take place can be an important decision among many that mothers and their families will make along the way. Pender Community Hospital offers private all-in-one Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum (LDRP) rooms located in the Dr. Benjamin and Ginger Martin OB Wing of our facility that opened in February of 2012.
Our rooms were designed for an important function, but the details are what will make all of the difference during and after your birthing experience. Warm colors and comfortable, modern decor combined with plenty of space for visitors make PCH a very easy choice.

Ask lots of questions
We encourage mothers-to-be to ask lots of questions. We hope you'll find an opportunity to talk to other mothers who have delivered at PCH and welcome you to tour our facility. Sharing knowledge and experience is a cornerstone of good parenting, and that happens before and after the baby is born.
