Beaumont Health System gets $5M for natural birthing

Posted: Updated:

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - Danialle and Peter Karmanos Jr. are giving $5 million to Beaumont Health System in suburban Detroit to expand natural birthing options for expectant mothers.

The gift announced Monday will create the Karmanos Center for Natural Birth and the Danialle & Peter Karmanos Jr. Birth Center at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak.

Peter Karmanos owns the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes and is the retired co-founder of Detroit-based software development company Compuware Corp.

The Karmanos Center for Natural Birth is expected to open in late 2014. It will combine the comfort of a home-like environment with the safety net of a hospital. The center will include birthing suites, a walking path for expectant mothers and a rooftop garden.
