Georgian Bay General Hospital's obstetrical unit provides Level I obstetrical care at our Midland site. The service has one obstetrician and various general practitioners providing obstetrical care. The birthing rooms are separated from the post-partum beds which are located at one end of a general medical/surgical unit. Georgian Bay General partners with Orillia Soldier's Memorial Hospital which is a Level II facility with paediatricians on staff. You should expect your baby to room in with you during your hospital stay.
