Thank you for being responsible for you mother. She certainly should be seeing a medical practioner to check her blood pressure. Depending on where you live, Brunswick County, Onslow County and Burgaw in Pender have hospitals that might be alternatives. Maybe a nurse midwife is an alternative if she has had no complications since her first delivery.

Go to Greenville if you are that concerned. New Bern is a tad closer, but I got a bad infection there, and it seems "everyone" I talk to either did themselves or knows someone who did. I won't recommend New Bern as a result.

I've heard both good and bad things about Pitt Memorial- I know of one individual who may lose a leg due to an infection that stemmed from an incorrectly performed procedure on his knee. Quite honestly, over the past 4 years I haven't been happy with any of the medical care I've received either in the Coastal NC region.

Although I've heard that Pitt is the pick of the hospitals, my husband swears by Duke, and always says that if anything major happens to either of us while we're still living in NC, it's worth the commute.

Here's an example of a practice that has a nurse-midwife. They have offices in New Bern and Havelock: Eastern Carolina Women's Center - New Bern - Havelock - NC | Gynecological Care - Obstetrical Care - da Vinci Robotic Surgery - Hysterectomy - Myomectomy - Sacrocolpopexy

If you can tell us where you live, people could be more helpful.

There are good and bad stories from every hospital. From Mass General all the way down to Bertie Memorial.

PCMH is eastern North Carolina only level 1 trauma center and one of the largest hospitals in the state. I would trust them before a lot of other hospitals.

But saying that, even the best precautions going by the book. In the medical world, crap can does still happen. It sucks, but that is life.

The ICU at Pitt Memorial is pretty boss. The rest of the hospital, so-so, but definitely better than what you'd find just about anywhere else regionally.

It will always be PCMH to me. I will never refer to it as that other name.

It's just an evolutionary change. Everything changes. At one time the United States was called the colonies. I'm sure the board of directors didn't mean the name change as a slight towards anyone.
