San Manuel Maternity Pavilion At Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital Opens

San Manuel Maternity Pavilion

The San Manuel Maternity Pavilion at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital opened Monday, August 9, bringing expanded care to the region’s most vulnerable mothers and babies through state-of-the-art technology, private patient rooms, specially designed delivery rooms, and more. It was commemorated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, August 6.

The pavilion was made possible by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, who announced a landmark gift of $25 million in 2019 to Loma Linda University Health to support the expansion of mother and baby services. 

Spanning the entire fifth floor of the new Dennis and Carol Troesh Medical Campus, the new space includes 44 licensed OB beds, 11 labor and delivery rooms, three C-section rooms, and nine triage rooms. Patient rooms are private and filled with natural light from wall-to-wall windows.

“The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has a long history of commitment to the San Bernardino region’s health and well-being, and Loma Linda University Health is honored to actively partner in their efforts,” said Loma Linda University Health President Richard H. Hart, MD, DrPh. “The new San Manuel Maternity Pavilion celebrates more than 100 years of our joint efforts aimed at improving maternal and child health throughout the Inland Empire.”

“The San Manuel Maternity Pavilion is our commitment to future generations yet to be born here within our ancestral lands,” said Chairman Ken Ramirez. “Our Yawa’ (to act on one’s beliefs) calls on us to ensure that every child born here receives quality care for the best possible start in life and this partnership makes that possible.”
