The WakeMed system opens its new Women's Hospital today. The system's fifth hospital adjoins two other main buildings on WakeMed's Raleigh campus.

The 61-bed women's hospital offers private delivery and bed rooms, lactation specialists, and postpartum care, says spokeswoman Debbie Laughery.

"And we know that comfort in a calming environment leads to healing. So, if we can bring the quality care together in a tranquil environment, we believe the outcomes will be better."

The women's hospital also offers general surgery, urology, gynecology and mammography services.

The facility's first birth by Cesarean section is scheduled today.
