Community Hospital North’s 60-bed maternity department is one of nation’s largest maternity units of its kind – with single-room care from labor through birth through the rest of the mom’s stay, and no need to move from one room to another.
This year, nearly 3,500 babies will take their first breaths at Community North. Most of these births will be normal deliveries with healthy moms and babies, but if they’re not, Community has the resources to care for them, all under one roof.
The maternal-fetal medicine team offers specialized care for mothers and babies at high risk, and there’s a full complement of pediatric specialists – surgery, gastrointestinal, neurology, development, anesthesia, hospitalists and neonatologists.
We are pleased to offer free tours of our maternity facilities. Please reserve a space for each person in your party by calling 800-777-7775 or register online.

Milk bank depot for breast milk donors
Community Hospital North is home to an Indiana Mothers' Milk Bank milk depot. Breast milk donors can now drop off their milk at this location. When a mothers' own milk is not available, pasteurized donor human milk is dispersed by prescription or hospital order primarily to premature infants in hospital neonatal intensive care units.
