Expanded Mother Baby Unit
Kathleen Penzes and Carol Suchy discuss the Maternity Floor

We've Expanded Our Maternity Program!

Use Code "sjo2014"

We are proud to annouce that our expanded Maternity Program features 50 spacious private rooms that accommodate an overnight stay for a support person and feature a special sink for baby's first bath. This allows the entire family to share a once-in-a-lifetime event in an intimate setting. Our new unit also features a Transitional Care Unit located down the hall from mom's room. The unit cares for babies who require observation immediately after delivery. For babies requiring a higher level of care, CHOC at St. Joseph Hospital's Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is located on the same floor. Anxious families appreciate our comprehensive care and our emphasis on dignity of the family.

At St. Joseph Hospital we believe that your child's birth is an event to be cherished for a lifetime. We have the privilege of welcoming more than 5,000 newborns annually. Each birth is unique, based on the growing family's special needs and desires. For all of our growing families, we pledge to provide a safe and nurturing birth experience. And for that added sense of security, our families know that our Transitional Care Unit and CHOC at St. Joseph Hospital's Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is on the same floor. For babies requiring a higher level of care, CHOC Children's is right next door.

When you're expecting a child, there are many decisions to make - the most important being where to deliver. The obstetrics team members at St. Joseph Hospital are committed to quality care, providing you with everything you need to prepare for this important time in your life.
