It's all about the Power of Family.

At St. James Healthcare, we deliver miracles!! We are proud to be a part of 500 new lives each year. Our team of professionals includes an all-RN staff, OB/GYNs, nurse midwives, family practice/OB doctors, pediatricians and family practice doctors.

The St. James Healthcare birthing center has four rooms the serve as LDRs-labor, delivery and recovery, while other rooms allow for postpartum care.

Our LDRs allow babies to be born in private rooms designed to provide the best medical technology for both mother and infant. Each suite is large to accommodate families in the birthing experience and is equipped with a jetted Jacuzzi tub for labor comfort.

The quality of health care is maintained as the priority on the labor and delivery floor. St. James offers 24-hour anesthesia coverage to administer labor analgesia.

After delivery, each new mom is moved to private postpartum/post delivery suites for the remainder of her stay. All rooms have a private shower and extra space for a rollaway bed for dads to stay. Special attention is given to educating mothers on post delivery care, newborn care and feeding.
