Infant security

Salem Health takes the safety of your new baby seriously. We have several features in place to provide an unprecedented level of security for newborns. The Salem Health Family Birth Center is a secure facility which requires all visitors to check-in with reception prior to entering patient rooms on all units. 

All Salem Health employees wear identification badges with their photograph, name and job designation. If you meet someone in medical-style clothing who isn’t wearing a badge, ask to see it or alert your nurse.

It’s also important for you to be aware that there are two main entrances to Building D, and the entrance closest to the main elevator will be on the right when facing the building from the parking garage.

All visitors arriving to building D will need to check in prior to entering the unit (all units are locked). You can do this by picking up the phone next to the double doors on the third- and fourth-floor landings. A clerk will greet you and direct you to the room you are visiting. Please be aware that all doors to Building D will be locked after hours (9 p.m. to 5 a.m.).
