Newly opened, the Donna A. Sanzari Women’s Hospital is part of the 300,000- square-foot Sarkis Gabrellian Women’s and Children’s Pavilion, which also houses the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital. The pavilion was carefully planned and developed to provide superior patient satisfaction and services within an environmentally healthy facility. The overall aesthetics, design, and amenities of the Sarkis Gabrellian Women’s and Children’s Pavilion were heavily researched by Hackensack University Medical Center and included focus groups that gauged public opinion. The facility’s design, energy systems, cleaning supplies, linens, medical equipment, and even the food prepared for patient/staff/visitor consumption are environmentally friendly in keeping with the values of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology®, an award-winning non-profit organization at Hackensack University Medical Center.  The center’s mission is to identify, control, and ultimately prevent environmental factors that cause adult and pediatric cancer.

The Donna A. Sanzari Women’s Hospital comprises the following:

  • Fourteen private labor, delivery and recovery (LDR) rooms
  • Two traditional labor rooms for women carrying babies who will be born prematurely
  • Three delivery rooms and four recovery rooms for cesarean-section deliveries and premature deliveries
  • Six triage beds and a separate triage area to assess pregnant women
  • Sixty private mother-baby rooms
  • Newborn nurseries that overlook the family waiting area
  • An antepartum inpatient unit with fifteen private rooms for women carrying high-risk pregnancies
  • The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Perinatal Diagnostic unit

The adjacent Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital contains the neonatal intensive care nursery (NICU) for newborns needing specialized care. The NICU contains 20 intensive care beds, 20 intermediate beds, 10 chronic beds for babies who are very premature and have chronic problems, and two transitional rooms for babies ready to go home, where their parents can stay for a few days before discharge and learn about their care.  The Children’s Hospital also contains the pediatrics unit and pediatric intensive care nursery.
