Opening Day Set for Cone Health Women’s & Children’s Center
Women’s services move from Women’s Hospital in late February.
The new Cone Health Women’s & Children’s Center at Moses Cone Hospital will open Sunday, Feb. 23, 2020. The $100 million Women’s & Children’s Center will move inpatient services from Women’s Hospital to The Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital.

The move will take place over four days, Feb. 20-23, with patients being moved all in one day on Sunday, Feb. 23. In the months leading up to the move, hospital staff will spend considerable time in the Women’s & Children’s Center stocking supplies and equipment and becoming familiar with the new space. Cone Health will even simulate patient moves between Women’s Hospital and the new Women’s & Children’s Center as a drill to ensure everything runs smoothly Feb. 23.
“We will work diligently to assure all areas are well-prepared to create an exceptional experience for patients, guests and employees when the new Women’s & Children’s Center opens in February,” says Bruce Swords, MD, PhD, chief physician executive and move day champion.
More than 1,000 former patients, family members, physicians, staff and members of the community contributed to the design and planning of the center. The goal of the new Women’s & Children’s Center is to provide the same exceptional, distinctive and personal care that has been a hallmark of Women’s Hospital since it opened in 1990
The Women’s & Children’s Center features 45 private neonatal intensive care rooms, a dedicated parking deck and entrances. Approximately 6,200 babies are delivered every year at Women’s Hospital.
