Area hospital offering new photo option

Sunday, March 22, 2009

GREENCASTLE -- Everyone enjoys sharing photos of their children or grandchildren and now mothers that choose to deliver at Putnam County Hospital have the option of doing just that through the Online Nursery.

Following delivery, a hospital staff member will take photos of the newborn and will post the photos on the hospital website at www.pchosp.org. with the mother's permission. The mother then receives a unique password specific to her and her child. Only the mother is able to share the password with family and friends to ensure the baby's privacy.

Viewers can log on to the hospital site and click on the Online Nursery and then enter the mother's information. A display of photos will appear with the baby's information, such as the birth weight, length and arrival time.

The photos are available on the website for viewing up to 60 days.

The service allows family members in different areas of the country, and the world, to share in the celebration of the new life.
