Women’s and Children’s Services
At Parkview Hospital, we are honored to help thousands of babies start their lives in our bestBeginnings program. As a patient-centered hospital, we provide the individualized attention and care that you and your baby deserve. We're here for you during your pregnancy, at your baby's birth, and beyond. Our services are designed to promote a healthy pregnancy, a safe delivery, and provide support after you leave the hospital.
Throughout your pregnancy, you can participate in many free classes that will help you prepare for your baby’s arrival. These classes are designed to promote a healthy pregnancy and ensure a safe delivery for the newest member of your family.
During your stay, you’ll feel right at home in our maternity unit. We’ve designed a comfortable environment staffed by an experienced team of medical professionals - many of whom have been with our mother/baby unit for more than 15 years.
We're happy to assist you by phone with pre-registration for your delivery. Please call our admitting department at 951-352-5610.

Understandably, you may have concerns about COVID-19 and your delivery. We hope this information is helpful. Please be sure to discuss any questions with your physician as well.
Maternity Patients Entrance - effective April 1, 2020
In an ongoing effort to protect the health and safety of our maternity patients during the COVID-19 outbreak, we have designated a separate entrance for maternity patients and their visitors.
The new Maternity Entrance is located on Miller Street (look for the awning and banner over the maternity entrance doors), with designated parking in the hospital lot at the Miller Street side of the hospital. The entrance is open 24/7 via an intercom. As an additional measure of safety, all patients and visitors entering through the maternity entrance will have their temperature screened by our staff.
Our temporary visitors policy is as follows:
• No one under the age of 18
• Maternity patients may have one designated support person for their stay. If using the services of a certified doula, maternity patients may have the doula AND one designated support person during their stay.
• NICU parents only may visit one at a time
We hope the new, private entrance will offer you a level of comfort during this difficult time. We’re here for you, and we look forward to delivering your bestBeginning!

- This drive-through service is available to pregnant women within 36 hours of their expected due date, scheduled c-section or induction. We will meet you at your vehicle and provide testing while you remain inside.
- Test results will be available prior to your delivery.
- The testing location is in the designated maternity parking spot in front of the hospital, off of the Miller Street entrance. (see map below)
- Appointments are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 – 9:30am.
- Patients who test positive will receive important education on treating symptoms and keeping your baby safe.
Call 951-352-5610 for your drive-through appointment and to pre-register for delivery if you have not already done so. The test requires a physician order, so please contact your doctor to have them send us the order.
