Lactation Consultants

Our staff are all skilled in helping you get off to a good start, but in case you need expert advice, we offer a full lactation department with board-certified lactation consultants available seven days a week. After you go home, if you still feel the need for assistance, our consultants are available to you on an outpatient basis by appointment.

OBED

Our Obstetrical Emergency Department (OBED) is located at Norman Regional HealthPlex and offers a physician who is a board-certified OB hospitalist who is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to evaluate you and your unborn child if needed. The OB hospitalist will work closely with your primary physician and the nursing staff to assess your condition, discuss your care options and provide appropriate treatment.

NICU

We have a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for babies who need additional care after they’re born. To help parents and babies with the transition home, the HealthPlex offers a 'rooming in' services that allows parents to stay in a hospital room the night before their baby or babies go home from the NICU.

Emergency Departments

We have three Emergency Departments open 24 hours a day, seven days a week that are conveniently located in Norman and Moore. If you have an emergency after your baby is born or as your child is growing up, you can have peace of mind knowing you have an Emergency Department nearby.

Pediatric Hospitalists

If your child gets sick as they get older and needs to be hospitalized, you don’t have to travel far because our pediatric hospitalists are here to help. Our pediatric hospitalist service provides quality and compassionate inpatient care for hospitalized children, from birth to 18 years of age. We have experienced pediatric hospitalists on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week as well as pediatric-trained nursing and ancillary staff providing the highest quality of care in a kid-friendly environment.

Outpatient Physicians

We have a community of outpatient pediatricians and family medicine providers who are prepared to offer your child the best care possible. It’s best to choose a doctor before your baby arrives. Selecting a provider before your baby is born will help to set up your baby’s first appointment before you leave the HealthPlex. Not sure where to start? Here are four steps to choosing a physician:

  1. Determine Location. Should you look for a pediatrician or family medicine physician who sees pediatric patients closer to home or to your work? Which will be most convenient for you?
  2. Insurance Network. Check with your insurance provider to make sure this provider is in your carrier’s network.
  3. Access to a Health System. If your child ever needs a specialist or a hospital procedure, it’s often easier to get a referral when the doctor is connected with a comprehensive health system.
  4. Personality. Of course, you’ll want a doctor your kids like! Look up your potential doctor on review sites like HealthGrades, RateMDs or Vitals. It’s also a good idea to make an appointment to interview the provider so you can decide for yourself if they are the right fit for you and your family.
