Our teaching hospitals
Recognized among the top hospitals in the United States, our main teaching hospitals help thousands of patients each year.
At Washington University Medical Campus:
Barnes-Jewish Hospital provides 52 obstetric beds (antepartum and mother-baby) and 18 labor and deliver beds. The new 12-story Parkview Tower provides a state-of-the-art inpatient facility for all obstetric and gynecologic services at the hospital. A 5th-floor bridge connects labor and delivery and the Level IV newborn intensive care unit (NICU) at the adjacent 12-story expansion of St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
Center for Outpatient Health
Completed in 2012, the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Center for Outpatient Health houses the Women’s Health Center which includes high-risk obstetrics, obstetrical diabetes, gynecologic tumors, colposcopy, urogynecology, pediatrics and family planning.
St. Louis Children’s Hospital
Ranked among the top children’s hospitals by “U.S. News & World Report,” St. Louis Children’s Hospital is home to a newly expanded 125-bed, Level IV newborn intensive care unit (NICU), the highest classification of specialty treatment for infants. In addition, the Fetal Care Center – a partnership among St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and the Washington University Physicians – provides advanced fetal diagnostics, fetal surgical interventions before and after birth, and newborn medicine.
Additional training site:
Missouri Baptist Medical Center

Washington University Medical Campus
The Washington University Medical Campus is a corporate entity including Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center and the Central Institute for the Deaf. The medical campus is located in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri.
The medical campus hospitals comprise an 1,800-bed complex of interconnected buildings with modern inpatient facilities and outpatient clinics. The medical center has the teaching responsibility for more than 1,100 medical and graduate students, interns, residents, and postdoctoral fellows and trainees.
Over the course of its first 150 years, Washington University in St. Louis has grown from a college educating local men and women to an internationally renowned research university with students and faculty from countries across the globe. Twenty-five Nobel Laureates are affiliated with the university, 18 of those with the School of Medicine.
Two campuses fulfill most of the university’s academic pursuits: The Danforth Campus and the Medical Campus. The city’s light rail system serves both campuses, which are just two stops apart on either side of Forest Park, a 1,300-acre oasis that is home to biking and walking trails, museums, the St. Louis Zoo and other attractions.
