LABOR & DELIVERY

The gift of motherhood is the most precious gift that a woman can receive. At Mena Regional Health System, we offer the best maternal care for our region. We have a staff made up of doctors and nurses who specialize in the care of Women and Newborns. All of the nursing staff and pediatrician staff are NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation) Certified.

NURSERY

Our staff strives to offer the Newborns of our community the best start on life’s journey. A 24 hour nursery is provided for your convenience. Our new nursery is much larger and has a state of the art infant security system. Our staff provides 24 hour newborn care. There is also an “isolation room” for sick babies and the nursery is able to care for premature babies not requiring ventilators. However, we at Mena Regional understand and support your wishes to have rooming in to promote bonding, if your condition and the infant’s condition permits. Visit our Online Nursery at www.growingfamily.com.

BIRTHING & POST PARTUM

We offer a warm home like atmosphere with a family oriented philosophy. Each Birthing Room is designed so that you labor, deliver, and recover in the same room. Our birthing rooms are beautifully decorated to provide a comfortable atmosphere. Although each room combines the look and feel of home, all of the necessary medical and emergency support are readily available. We want all of our patient’s to be as comfortable as possible during their stay. We have brand new state of the art birthing beds that allow for position of comfort during labor and delivery. If you were to need a cesarean section, Mena Regional encourages the fathers or labor coach to share the birth experience. With the physician’s approval, the father is welcome to join you in the C-Section Suite to offer you support, reassurance and to be with your new baby in the precious first moments of life. After your C-Section you will go to our Post-Partum Rooms and cared for by our professional caring staff just as you would if you had a routine delivery.

Your privacy is important to us. We respect the wishes of our patients. The nursing staff creates an individualized plan of care for you. Your family is important to us so we offer visiting whenever the patient wants. Signs for the door are available to let the family know when would be a good time for visiting. We offer all of our patients private rooms with private bathrooms at Mena Regional Health System.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Our nurses carry pocket pagers meaning our patients get very prompt responses to their calls. Our staff is available for lactation nursing as well. Social and dietary services are also available. We also offer bimonthly Prepared Childbirth Classes free of charge to our patients. The class schedule is the first two Thursday nights of the month from 6pm-8pm in the following months: January, March, May, July, September, & November.

It’s easy to see why our patient satisfaction surveys are off the charts!


PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY

We know that your baby’s first photo is very important to you. We offer professional photo’s of your brand new baby. During your stay, if you consent, we will take a picture of your baby and give you a booklet that you can choose what packet would be right for you and your family. We also have a website that you can go to and retrieve your baby’s photos online. Visit our Online Nursery at www.growingfamily.com.



PRE-NATAL SERVICES

We encourage you to contact us in advance of your delivery so that we can help answer any of your questions you may have and make and suggestions on what to do to be prepared. We offer tours of Women’s Services at your convenience. We also offer a Pre-Induction and Pre-Cesarean Section Teaching program. Through this program you come in prior to your induction or cesarean section and all of your consents are signed and teaching is done with you. We answer any questions that you might have at this time.

Child Birth Classes: Offered monthly. Please click here or call Women’s Services, 479-394-6100 ext 6401 for more information and scheduling.

4D Ultrasound: Now you don’t have to wait until delivery day to see your baby’s first photo. This incredible 4D technology will allow you to see if your baby has momma’s smile or daddy’s nose! Schedule an appointment with our radiology department, and for just $100 you can see these amazing images of your precious one and receive a disk of still photos for additional prints or to e-mail. There is no radiologist interpretation with this promotion.

Call 243-2214 for more information.

MAMMOGRAPHY

Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system for the examination of breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms and to detect and diagnose breast disease in women experiencing symptoms such as a lump, pain or nipple discharge. To schedule your appointment, contact the radiology department at 243-2214.

 

Bone Density Using QCT

Bone Densitometry (QCT) is performed here at Mena Regional using our CT scanner. This gives more accurate results than bone density with DEXA, which is standard in most imaging facilities. The scanning time of QCT is about 15 minutes, whereas DEXA is closer to 30 minutes. QCT measures the inner (trabeculae) of the bone, which is the first area to be changed by Osteoporosis, giving more accurate results of changing bone density. We suggest having these scheduled with your Mammogram appointment as an easy way to ensure both studies are done yearly. If you are at risk for Osteoporosis, insurance and Medicare may allow one per year, so there may be little, if any, out of pocket expense. Osteoporosis is a manageable disease, with the current medications, so ask your doctor to schedule your exam today.

Call us for more information. 479-243-2214 or 479-243-2209

Gynecological Surgeries

The department also performs gynecological surgeries.

For more information, please call us direct at 243-2409 or contact the department manager at teresaw@menaregional.com.
