A $5 million gift from Brown University will support plans by Care New England (CNE) to build a technologically advanced labor and delivery center at Women & Infants Hospital. 

In recognition of the gift, CNE will name its facility the Brown University Labor and Delivery Center, and it will be designed to meet the specific needs of birthing families from Rhode Island and the surrounding region and their dedicated medical providers. 

Dr. James E. Fanale, president and CEO of Care New England, said that four out of five families from Rhode Island give birth at Women & Infants, an innovator in the fields of normal and high-risk obstetrics and neonatology. While the hospital’s existing labor and delivery suite has served patients well for more than 35 years, evolving medical protocols, technologies and patient expectations necessitate an update. 

“The redesigned and expanded labor and delivery center will provide an exceptional environment to support Women & Infants Hospital’s excellence and commitment to world-class medical care, and it would not be possible without our deep, long-standing relationship with our academic partner, Brown University,” Fanale says. “The university’s investment will anchor efforts to build a facility that will have a tremendously positive impact on regional health care and will benefit a significant proportion of people giving birth in the region, and their families, for generations to come.”
