Superior care that honors your birth plan.

As the only Baby-Friendly® hospital in the region, we’re experts at caring for new moms and their babies throughout the delivery process. We focus on the physical and emotional well-being of your entire family. We work with cutting-edge technology to give you top-of-the-line treatment that aligns with your birth plan and prioritizes your safety. Our birthing center offers families a private atmosphere and personalized care. Our joint commitment to personalized care and state-of-the-art medicine is why Newsweek, in partnership with The Leapfrog Group, designated us as one of the two Best Maternity Hospitals in NY State.

YOUR BIRTH, YOUR WAY

A childbirth experience that prioritizes you.

Because we know that childbirth is a vitally important step in the relationship between mother and child, we strive to treat the process with the care and humanity it deserves.  We work hard to make sure that our maternity care services prioritize the mother’s wishes for her hospital birth alongside her health and the health of the baby.

Choose your birth experience.

The Birth Place:

For those looking for a natural, low-intervention birth experience, our birthing center provides the only space in Syracuse that mimics a home birth while still being located near the surgical and anesthesia facilities in labor and delivery.

Labor and Delivery Unit:

A traditional setting for birth experiences to accommodate deliveries of all risk levels.

Maternal-Fetal Medicine (Perinatology):

By providing the best-possible prenatal care for high-risk pregnancies, our team of specialists takes care of both the mother and baby before, during and shortly after pregnancy (This Program is in partnership with the University of Rochester).

Learn more
Mother and Baby Unit:

Single-Room Maternity Care (For low-risk pregnancies). Mother and baby (and partner) stay in 1 room the whole time.

Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU):

A highly skilled, technologically advanced environment located on the same floor as Labor and Delivery, the Mother-Baby Unit and the Birth Place. It has been designed as a calming place for babies and parents.

Services and amenities to support you physically and emotionally.

Attentive Staff:

Nurses interact with you and your family; and they assist you with breathing and relaxation techniques. You and your baby will be cared for by 1 nurse who provides individualized education and support throughout the process.

Loved Ones Welcome:

Bring a labor coach and/or a doula with you to provide comfort and encouragement during labor and delivery experience.

For Your Comfort:

A walking ‘corridor,’ whirlpool tub, shower, pain medication and/or epidural anesthesia are available to you.

Mother/Baby Bonding:

Your baby will be placed skin to skin immediately after the hospital delivery. With warm blankets and a hat, the baby will remain skin to skin for 1 hour.

Breast Feeding:

Your baby will be placed on your breast as soon as possible after the delivery; your nurse will assist you when your baby is ready.

Dining:

Full room-service menu available from 6:45 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. with wonderful meal selections delivered to your room. We also have a stocked kitchen for those midday or midnight cravings.
