Members of the Angleton Danbury community had the opportunity to tour the Peklo Women’s Pavilion on the UTMB Angleton Danbury Campus and meet its physicians and staff during an open house on March 17.

“We want people to know that UTMB is in town and we are happy to be here,” said Susan Nilsen, nurse manager of the Mother-Baby Unit.

The Peklo Women’s Pavilion has 11 spacious birthing rooms that allow for labor, delivery and post-partum care in the same room with the same health care professional.

“We provide a beautiful, quiet environment and excellent care with access to the main campus, if needed,” said Nilsen. “We want to deliver healthy babies and take care of healthy moms, but if we have women with complications, we know exactly what to do.”

Drs. Courtney Gray Wiese and Vien Cam Lam joined the women’s health team at ADC last August. They both recently completed their OB-GYN residencies at UTMB and have small children of their own.
