Women’s Health Services
Healthcare for Every Stage of a Woman’s Life
When St. Joseph Medical Center was established in 1887, we were the first obstetrical hospital in the city, delivering one in every three Houstonians. Today, we carry on that tradition of quality care for mothers and their babies. Each year we bring nearly 5,000 newborns into the world, right here in the heart of downtown Houston. That’s more than one baby every two hours.
