Modern Women’s Center In Johnston Health Clayton
Taking the tour with me was my wife Kelly, a labor and delivery nurse who gave the new Women’s Center two thumbs up. The Clayton Women’s Center has four Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum suites. The suites are magnificent, spacious and modern with every convenience and detail imaginable designed to make birthing mothers and babies as comfortable as possible. The birthing suites are private and babies are able to stay with mom during recovery. The rooms have rockers, a Murphy bed, iPod dock stations and hardwood floors. There is a dedicated suite for C-sections and epidural and anesthesia is provided around the clock. There is a separate entrance for expectant mothers and bedside registration.
Lots Of New Residents For Johnston County
I drive by the hospital all the time and I am struck by how quickly the parking lot is now filled every day as Johnston County residents take advantage of a first class medical facility close to their homes. The growing populations of Clayton, Archer Lodge, the Cleveland and 40/42 area and the many other towns in Johnston County will certainly keep the medical professionals busy. With more and more new residents moving into the county the potential to expand the hospital even further with an additional 100 beds and more medical offices is already being discussed.
North Carolina Now Ninth Most Populous State
I suspect there will be more announcements of growth for the town of Clayton and Johnston County in the coming months. North Carolina is now the ninth most populous state in the nation, edging out Michigan. North Carolina has a population of around 9.94 million residents and increased it’s population by 94,000 between July 2013 and July 2014. Road projects and transportation issues are front and center in the Triangle at the moment as the area decides how to move everyone around.
