Nationally recognized maternity care
Many of our birth centers are Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Distinction® Centers for Maternity Care. Plus, St. Francis Hospital and St. Elizabeth Hospital are among America’s Best Maternity Hospitals according to Newsweek magazine.
We deliver high-quality services for vaginal, vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) and cesarean section (C-section) deliveries (if necessary). Our teams also maintain outstanding patient satisfaction rates and lower rates of early elective deliveries.
After a long labor and tearing with her first baby, Misty opted for a natural birth at the Midwifery Birth Center at St. Joseph Medical Center for her second. She credits the relaxed approach and individual attention with helping her have a successful vaginal delivery. And she speaks highly of her experience, “I recommend it to anyone interested in a natural birth. It’s amazing.”
