Aspirus Riverview Hospital in Wisconsin Rapids invites everyone to the grand opening of the new Aspirus Riverview Family Birthplace on Thursday, January 31. The celebration will include self-guided tours and light refreshments from 4 to 6 pm and a ribbon cutting ceremony at 5 pm.

The new birthplace features 425-square-foot hotel-style suites with walk-in showers, whirlpool tubs, large flat-screen TVs, queen-size sofa beds, in-suite mini fridges, dimmable lights, and more to make the wonder of birth even more wonderful. Rooms and hallways within the new birthplace feature beautiful and soothing nature themes from around Wisconsin.

“Our goal was to raise the standard for the birthing experience,” said Todd Burch, Aspirus Riverview CEO. “Our new birthplace will provide moms, families and loved ones with the most comfortable, inspirational and memorable experience possible.”

The most convenient parking for those attending the grand opening celebration will be in Lot 4 – on the north side of Dewey Street across from the hospital.

The new birthplace is located on the third floor of Aspirus Riverview Tower on the west end of the hospital campus. The first day it will be open for newborn deliveries will be February 14. Until then, the current Aspirus Riverview Family Birthplace will continue to be open.
