“HANFORD — A new era is dawning for expectant mothers in Kings County after Adventist Health announced plans Thursday afternoon to build a new $40-million Family Birth Center to provide obstetrics and delivery services for local families.
“We’re excited to announce a new birthplace for Kings County families,” said Adventist Health/Central Valley Network President and CEO Wayne Ferch. “The Family Birth Center helps us serve our region as a resource for starting healthy and happy families.”
The Adventist Health corporate board in Roseville approved funding for the project on Feb. 11, and groundbreaking is expected to occur this year for the single-level, 49,000-square-foot center that will be built adjacent to Adventist Medical Center-Hanford on Mall Drive. It will replace the current birth center at Central Valley General Hospital on Douty Street in Hanford
