A Compassionate Approach to Labor and delivery

Women are compassionate and courageous. That's why, at St. Joseph’s Health, we provide birth options that suit your needs and delivery plan. Our Labor and Delivery Unit is partnered with our nationally recognized Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (ranked in the top 10% of NICUs in the country, according to Press Ganey® in 2018), providing peace of mind that your infant's needs will be met.

We offer the only hospital-based birthing center in the region, which gives the entire family a more private atmosphere. Our dedication to dynamic birth plans results in better patient outcomes, and our dedication to breastfeeding education has earned us the only Baby Friendly® designation in Central New York.

We exceed best practices in promoting the health and well-being of mothers and infants by focusing on the physical, social and emotional aspects of the entire process — with a perfect balance of cutting-edge technology and compassionate approach.
