Your Team

Expert and compassionate staff, modern facilities and comfortable surroundings are important and all are waiting for you at Boven Birth Center.

Our high patient satisfaction scores testify to the expert skill and caring approach of the Boven Birth Center team, from our expert physicians and nurses to our lactation consultants, parent advocates and more. We take pride in our health care team. Professional standards are essential. Advanced equipment and technology are necessary. But what really matters are the people who care for you and your baby.

OB/GYNs, Surgeons and Physicians

Your doctor directs your care throughout your hospital stay including arrangements for medication, special diets, laboratory tests, therapy and/or other treatments. As the coordinator of your treatment program, your doctor should be consulted if you have any questions and will be included in your birth plan.


Anesthesiologists are medical doctors who provide pain relief for laboring mothers who choose to receive an epidural or spinal block as part of their birth plan.

Nurses Specializing in Obstetrics

Our nurses specialize in caring for moms and babies. They’ve committed their professional careers to providing healthy, safe birth experiences. Our nurses have a love of life that shows in their attention to every small detail. You will be treated with compassion and understanding as it is our privilege to help welcome your baby into the world.

Pediatric Hospitalists

A hospitalist is a physician who specializes in providing care for babies who need to be hospitalized. They work closely with an infant's primary care physician. Upon hospital admission, they inform your physician's office, obtain any necessary information and records, and remain in contact with your physician as needed throughout the hospital stay. Upon discharge from the hospital, they send a copy of the discharge report to your physician.

Nurse Practitioners

A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse with advanced training, who works closely with the pediatric hospitalist to provide care for your infant.

Care Managers

Care managers are available to address special concerns. Your care manager may monitor progress and help with referrals to community organizations or the hospital social workers.

Lactation Consultants

Our team of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) provides expert education and support for breastfeeding moms. We understand the benefits and barriers associated with breastfeeding and want to help ensure your success. Not only will our lactation consultants support you during your hospital stay, but they offer follow-up support after you return home as well

Parent Advocates

Since babies don't come with instruction manuals, the Boven Birth Center offers the next best thing. Our Parent Advocate Team is available to provide you with information and support in the hospital and after you go home. Parent Advocates will get you started with resources and tools to help you navigate the challenges new parents often face during baby's first months of life.

Home Health Professionals

Home Health Services offers a full range of services and clinical specialties to meet short or long-term medical needs in the comfort of your home. Specialists work closely with your hospital team to ensure continuity of care and quality service. Services are accredited by CHAPS (Community Health Accreditation Program), which recognizes our agency for exceeding the quality standards of home care. This is one of the best assurances that new parents referred to Home Health Services receive the highest quality of care.


Holland Hospital is fortunate to have more than 350 committed and trained volunteers who give their time and talents. A volunteer may visit your room to deliver meal trays or to bring flowers or mail. They may also assist you with internal transports and discharge from the hospital.
