Having Your Baby at St. Joseph Medical Center
As the first and only maternity hospital in downtown Houston, St. Joseph Women’s Medical Center has been delivering thousands of Houston’s citizens annually for the past 125 years.
Not only do we have decades of experience behind us; we also have some of Houston’s best board certified physicians on staff and residents on hand at all hours to ensure that you and your baby are well taken care of during this exciting and joyful time.
The St. Joseph Women’s Medical Center is a separate facility connected via skywalk to the 1.2 million square foot campus of St. Joseph Medical Center. We provide a beautiful setting for you and your family to enjoy the birth of your child. Our campus is an easy exit from Highway 59, 288, I-10, the Hardy toll road, and I-45. When you arrive, our concierge staff will direct you to the OB triage area where you will be greeted and assessed before moving to your room.
We also offer maternity tours to help orient you to the hospital before the baby’s arrival.
We offer all private rooms in our Women’s Medical Center. Should you need more room for your family to take part in this experience, please ask your patient access representative for information. Understanding that families are the most important part of our lives, we want to make sure everyone you want to be with you can enjoy this special occasion.
The safe delivery of your baby and a complete recovery for you is our top priority. We believe it’s important that the same nursing staff care for you and your baby during your stay. This assures that you have complete knowledge of everything that is planned for you and your baby from the same communication source whenever possible. We want you to have complete confidence in your care team.
