Toppel Family Place

 

Having a baby is one of life's most cherished experiences – an experience that can be made more wonderful when parents feel good about their pregnancy, delivery and raising and nurturing their newborn. Our dedicated, professional staff is here to assist you and your family get the best, most loving and comfortable start in life.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Your birth experience begins as you arrive at our private entrance. Then you will settle into one of our beautifully decorated 12-labor/delivery/recovery rooms, which will be 'home' for your hospital stay.

Each private suite has all the comforts of home with a modern bed, sleeper sofa, rocking chair, dining table, armoire with television and many other special amenities. And, behind the scenes, our state-of-the-art security system safeguards your newborn at all times.

Visiting hours are flexible to accommodate your family's routine. Your family, including your other children, can visit anytime that is convenient for you.

Although your baby can stay in a bassinet beside your bed during your entire stay, you have the security of knowing that if you want to rest, or if complications arise, your baby can go to our fully equipped nursery.

A board-certified neonatologist specializing in the care of high-risk infants is available on-site 24 hours a day, every day, to attend to your newborn's needs in our newly state approved Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, if necessary. Our board certified anesthesiologists are also available round-the-clock.

CHECKLIST FOR NEW PATIENTS

We know that peace of mind comes with being informed about every aspect of your prenatal, postpartum, and parenting experience. That's why we offer the area's most comprehensive, award-winning maternity services. Here's a checklist to help you make the most of your birthing experience and get you started on your 'parenting journey.'
  • Have you selected an obstetrician who is board-certified or board eligible?
  • Have you selected a pediatrician who is board-certified or board eligible?
  • Have you decided where to deliver?
  • If so, does the facility offer a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit staffed in house 24 hours a day by board-certified neonatologists?

At Boca Raton Regional Hospital, we understand that the miracle of having a baby is something to be shared with all the people who will be important in your baby's life. It's a family affair, a wondrous time that will create memories to cherish for the rest of your life.

That's why we created Toppel Family Place, a special homelike environment where our family of caring professionals can help make sure that you and your new family get the best start in life.

Our goal is to support the adjustment of your family to the birth of your baby and to ensure that when you leave Boca Raton Regional Hospital you will be confident in your ability to care for your new little one.

To help you get ready for this exciting time, we’ve prepared a helpful list of items you may need while you’re at the hospital. To make things easier for you and your family, we recommend packing two bags: one with all the supplies you’ll need during labor and a larger bag for everything else you may want later.

Labor Bag

  • Socks, nightgown and bathrobe
  • Hair barrette or hair band
  • Glasses or contact lenses (with solution and case)

  • Money for vending machines or snacks
  • Camera
  • Relaxation materials such as tennis balls (for back massage), cards, music, books and magazines, etc.
Suitcase for After Your Baby Arrives

MOTHER/BABY NURSING

Unique to Toppel Family Place, we offer mother/baby-nursing care, which means the same nurses care for both mother and baby on each shift. Most care takes place in your room by a maternal/child nurse who is at your side to answer questions, share her knowledge and experience and help you to develop your infant care skills.

UNIVERSAL HEARING SCREENS FOR ALL NEWBORNS

Boca Raton Regional Hospital is the first area hospital to provide hearing screenings for all newborns. Toppel Family Place is dedicated to identifying hearing impairment at birth, rather than months or years later.

BABY CERTIFICATE

Before discharge, a medical record representative will assist you in completing the birth certificate and social security forms. Both forms are required by the state. The State of Florida will mail you an official copy within a few months.

BABY PHOTOS

On the day of discharge, a photographer from our 365 will ask you if you are interested in having your baby's picture taken before discharge. Photos are taken your room in the outfit of your choice. An assortment of photo packages is available and can be paid for by credit card, cash, COD or check.
