Pregnant women from western Madison and eastern Limestone counties who don’t want to drive into Huntsville now have the option of giving birth closer to home.

The labor and delivery program at Madison Hospital opens at noon, WHNT News 19’s media partner The Huntsville Times reports.

“The closer we get, the antsier everyone is to take care of a patient,” Madison Hospital clinical operations manager Shari Crowe told The Times.  “They’re ready for whatever comes in the door.”

Labor and delivery is the final major service planned for Madison Hospital, which opened in February.
