Family Birthing Center enjoys a long, rich history of caring for Hanford with personal attention and expert care.
The hospital owes its beginnings to Portuguese Dominican nuns, who had the Sacred Heart Hospital built in 1915 with 20 beds and expanded it in 1959. Adventist Health purchased the 49-bed hospital, which by then was called Family Birthing Center, in 1998.
The second and top floor of the three-story hospital features Women’s Services with comfortable, homestyle rooms for labor and delivery. The unit also provides a neonatal intensive care unit staffed by Children’s Hospital Central California for added care.
The hospital also offers radiology, laboratory and dining services on its main floor.
Another major service at Family Birthing Center is Community Care, which offers a clinic on the Garden Level as well as a clinic on the First Floor that is open 8 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. The clinic network also has three other services on the campus: a dental clinic, Healthy Beginnings prenatal care, Specialty and Hanford Family Practice Residency program.
Family Birthing Center is part of Adventist Health, a faith-based, not-for-profit integrated health care delivery system with nearly 20,000 employees serving communities in California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington. Founded on Seventh-day Adventist health values, Adventist Health provides compassionate care in 17 hospitals, more than 130 physician and rural health clinics, 14 home care agencies and four joint-venture retirement centers. We invite you to visit Adventist Health for more information.
