Grand Expectations at University Medical Center

University Medical Center has some grand expectations for its female patients.

"GrandExpectations was developed with the expectant mother in mind. We realize it is stressful when a patient is not sure whether they are pregnant or not. At GrandExpectations, our healthcare providers conduct pregnancy testing in complete confidence, and immediate results are available," said Greg Bruce, UMC Health System Vice President.

Through GrandExpectations, UMC Health System offers free pregnancy testing, physician referral, Medicaid application assistance. In addition, a unique rewards program is open to all expectant mothers delivering at UMC. The Baby Boutique, housed at GrandExpectations, allows participants to earn free baby items by completing simple steps such as attending physician appointments and completing prenatal steps.

"The importance of prenatal care cannot be stressed enough. It allows for a happy, healthy pregnancy and delivery. We are proud that Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center's department of OB/GYN and Family Practice have partnered with us and have physicians onsite at GrandExpectations to provide care for our patients," Bruce added.
