An area hospital has expanded.
Lonesome Pine Hospital in Big Stone Gap, Virginia has added two birthing rooms, opened a new nursery and doubled the size of the nurses' station.
The modifications also included the addition of a system at the nurses' station that enables staff and physicians to constantly monitor elements of birth, like fetal heart rate and the frequency of a woman's contractions. Doctors can log onto the system from their home or office and direct nurses on appropriate care prior to their arrival at Lonesome Pine.
