Birth Center at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital 'feels like home'

For the delivery of their first child, Dr. Neeru Jayanthi and his wife, Lakshmi Bhargave Jayanthi, chose Gottlieb Memorial Hospital's Birth Center. Dr. Karen Deighan helped with the delivery of little Kishan, a handsome baby boy.

Mrs. Jayanthi talked about how nice the rooms were and Dr. Jayanthi, a Sports Medicine specialist at Loyola, talked about how not only did the staff take excellent care of his wife, but of him as well in his role as a new father. Dr. Deighan tells how it was honor to take care of the Jayanthis and how Gottlieb stands out from other community hospitals.

Parents can rest assured knowing that Gottlieb's sister hospital on the Loyola University Medical Center is nationally known for its outstanding Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and just minutes away.
