When there’s a new addition to the family and you’re on your way to the hospital or you’re leaving work and don’t want to stop on your ride home to pick up a gift for a precious baby in your life, Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center (OHMC) delivers the solution.
On Oct. 13, OHMC opened its new Mom & Baby Shop in the atrium of the hospital after a two-month construction process. The bright and cheery décor and products feature everything from flowers for mom to adorable outfits and toys for baby. “We want to enhance retail offerings for patients and staff as well as give the atrium a more comfortable feel,” said Oakwood’s Director of Retail Strategies, Tom Drummy.
So far, the new shop has been very popular – particularly among OHMC employees and staff. In fact, approximately 75 percent of the business so far has come from Oakwood employees. “I love the shop. I’ve been at Oakwood for 26 years and I’m already a frequent flyer,” said OHMC operating room nurse, Norma Dolney, RN.

Drummy said the new shop is not the end of the retail changes for OHMC. He and his staff are looking at giving the Oakleaf Gift Shop and outpatient pharmacy new looks as well as developing a specialized store for those going through cancer treatment.
“There are a lot of things we can do to make our patients and employees lives easier by giving them options to buy what they need while they’re here instead of on their way home,” Tom said.
The Mom & Baby Shop at OHMC is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
