One last quickie question, I'm in the middle of the move from Concord to Shallotte.....it seems most people I know from having family in the area, use New Hanover Regional Med Ctr in Wilmington for their surgeries and doctors, etc. Maternity too...Brunswick Hospital always had mixed reviews, lots of negatives, BUT, they have been bought out now by Novante IIRC. So they are supposed to be new and improved.
I have found an OB group in Wilmington near NHRMC but if Brunswick Hospital is ok, I'd rather not have to make the 45 minute trek to the weekly OB appointments and to the hospital to deliver when labor starts, IF Brunswick is good. I am afraid to trust it without knowing of people who use it though, and everyone I know in Brunswick County, at least 4 or 5 people, has delivered in Wilmington.
Does anyone know anything about the maternity serviced at Brunswick? I need to make a decision soon and I don't think I want to risk it, but then, the drive is going to be hard in the last month or two...45 minutes each way to a doctor's appointment.
