St. John’s Riverside 5-Star Maternity | For the tenth year in a row, St. John’s Riverside Hospital’s Maternity Center has received a 5-Star rating and national recognition for quality and value that confirms our services surpass many maternity centers nationwide.
So what does a Five-Star Maternity Center offer a new parent? Comfort.
Comfort is being cared for by an outstanding, award-winning team of caring physicians and nurses who offer obstetrical care through every stage of a woman’s pregnancy. It is a team of doctors who take the time to get to know you and your family and ask questions to understand what is important to you.
Comfort is resting with your baby in your own state-of-the-art luxury suite with majestic views of the Hudson River. Suites have private baths and sleeper chairs to comfortably accommodate partners. During your stay our chefs will provide a gourmet celebration dinner for the new parents. And, every day you can enjoy delicious homemade baked goods and fresh fruit from our afternoon tea cart.
Comfort is about a staff committed to making your childbirth experience a memorable and personal event. Our board certified physicians and specially trained nurses provide you with the best medical care and support that a new family deserves. From the start, the team is available for private tours of the center before your stay. During your stay, you will receive individual attention as part of our comprehensive education program including lactation consultants that are available to provide instruction and support during your stay.
Comfort is having a team that works with you throughout your pregnancy and delivery.
Comfort is the knowledge that our recently expanded Neonatology Program will give you peace of mind. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and specially trained neonatal staff are available if your baby is born prematurely or has other special needs. Comfort is knowing your baby is safe.
Comfort is a maternity unit that keeps a patient and newborn’s protection top priority. St. John’s Riverside Hospital’s award winning safety program includes security protocols followed by maternity centers nationwide which include electronic tagging for infants. In addition, parents can take advantage of “rooming in” where newborns remain in the same room as their mothers for most of their stay.
Comfort is the knowledge that as a parent, you have made the first and very best decision for your child; you’ve chosen a hospital that has housed this top-ranking, leading maternity center for over one hundred years.
“With my previous 3 births everyone made me feel like I was their #1 patient. It’s a memory my family and I will never forget.”
