Hospital’s role all the larger with baby boom

It likely comes as no shock that with the loss of Baylor Waxahachie’s obstetrics division in the summer, Ennis Regional Medical Center is left to pick up the slack.
By all accounts, as was referenced in a Tuesday story on a boom in recent births at the facility, they’re doing a bang-up job of keeping the expectant mothers well accommodated.

It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly as a community, and the powers that be at the hospital are aware the burden is no small one. The hospital’s birthing suites offer mothers comfort and convenience that less modern facilities cannot boast, for example, and the recruitment of well trained physicians to care for the community’s youngest members is a key step in ensuring quality.

Ennis Regional Medical Center has, since its construction and the unsettling saga that spawned the community’s partnership with its parent company Lifepoint, been a cornerstone of the medical community here and a key player in Ennis’ future. With Baylor leaving us holding the bag at the turn of the millennium, it seems fitting that the new facility on Medical Center Drive is picking up the slack for big Baylor yet again with the support we are providing regionally for obstetrics services at our local hospital.

It speaks to foresight and planning that the hospital is able to step in when regional medical facilities are left with the tough decision of putting their patients in a tough situation. To us, it means Ennis Regional Medical Center is that much more of a key community resource because of its regional appeal and draw, and it becomes a selling point for our community even more than it has been already.

On with the baby boom at our local hospital. We are proud to offer a comfortable, modern and professional environment where families can feel safe bringing their youngest members into the world.
