New state-of-the-art location opening soon
Our women and infants care will begin moving to a brand new facility in the Central West End in late 2017. An expansion of Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s hospitals, the new location will include rooms for labor and delivery as well as C-sections, ample family visiting areas, and comfortable inpatient rooms for overnight stays. The labor and delivery space will also connect to an all-private neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital expansion, which will house one of the top-performing neonatology teams in the country.
