Nurses were so caring and kind! The whirlpool tub and other amenities made a huge difference during my labor. Only downside was that the food always took a while to get to our room! Thank you so much!

I cannot rave enough about the labor and delivery nurses. They were top notch in every part. My OB doctor was wonderful and would recommend her along with Brookings Health system.

I have had the best experiences with both of my births, the second being with twins from every pre-natal appt to going in to L&D to get "checked," to delivery. Every nurse was absolutely wonderful. Some we recognized from our 1st baby 5 years ago! With twin pregnancy I was anxious, but with the best care, absolutely nothing went wrong. Not one nurse or employee left our room w/o asking if I needed anything. (Including housekeeping and kitchen) A huge thank you to Dr. Haarsma, Marie, RN Dr. Ellsworth. Labor and delivery staff Audra Sarah Brooke (intern) Emily Nancy Lindsey Michelle Amanda Megan Andrea Liz Dana We will forever remember each of you!! Thank you will never be enough!! We appreciate your knowledge, and expertise. Thank you for the best care.

This was the 3rd birth we have had at this hospital. Of all 3 hospital stays, this stay had the least amenities. All of the rooms in the Maternity + hospital wards were full as well so the nurses were overworked.

The nurses were amazing! Very helpful and explained things along the way, which was nice for a first time mom. My doctor was also amazing! Dr. Haarsma was very supportive and calm during the birthing process.

Excellent care provided by the Brookings Labor Unit, and all of its nurses and doctors. You can tell they really enjoy their job and the opportunity to care for new moms and babies.
