We are proud to be the first hospital in Illinois to be awarded the Perinatal Care Certification from The Joint Commission, acknowledging our commitment to achieving patient-centered care for mothers and newborns.
The Maternity Center at Saint Anthony Hospital offers private labor and delivery rooms, a Level II nursery, as well as Maternal-Fetal Medicine services.
Our Maternity Center fosters a nurturing environment that supports new families and promotes patient and newborn safety. While designed to feel like home, each patient room has all of the necessary medical equipment with a clinical team ready to care for each new mother and her baby.
Obstetricians, masters-prepared midwives and family practitioners provide obstetrical care in our Maternity Center, and obstetrical anesthesiologists manage patient pain to assure as comfortable a delivery experience as possible.
Family involvement and bonding is the Maternity Center's goal, and rooming-in is encouraged.
Safety is one of our top priorities here at the Saint Anthony Hospital Maternity Center. That is why we have started the New Child Safety Program. We want to help provide extra care for your extra special delivery.
Every woman who delivers at our Maternity Center will receive a free, highly-rated car seat and a few additional necessities for your newborn. Each seat will be specially installed upon discharge by one of our certified passenger safety technicians.
