Batavian's have quick access to highly skilled medical practitioners in two conveniently located hospitals.
Delnor-Community Hospital, minutes north of Batavia on Randall Road, is part of Delnor-Community Health System. A modern, 118-bed medical facility, the hospital is a state-designated Level II Trauma Center. Its 24-hour emergency department is staffed by physicians and nurses specially trained in emergency medicine.
Comfortable, home-like, labor/delivery/ recovery suites are available in the hospital's NewLife Maternity Center, as are rooming in and mother/baby nursing. High risk newborns are cared for in a Level II nursery.
Parents can remain close to their children in Delnor-Community Hospital's Pediatric Department, with its pullout beds that give parents a place to sleep. To help assure patients' well being, the department's nurses are all certified in pediatric advanced life support.
Among the hospital's variety of services are same-day surgery, a cancer care program accredited by the American College of Surgeons, home health care, a warm water therapy pool, and a full range of rehabilitation programs. In addition, the hospital has such highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment as CT scans, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, angiography, and nuclear medicine.
