5 reasons why AHN Saint Vincent is Erie's top hospital for maternity care

Choosing where to deliver your baby is a big decision — but it’s not a hard one. The Women and Infants Center at AHN Saint Vincent Hospital offers a wide range of services and modern amenities to ensure your delivery experience is everything you want it to be. Here’s why we’re the top choice for parents-to-be in Erie.

1. Top rating from U.S. News & World Report

We're honored to receive the High-Performing Hospital in Maternity Care 2022-2023 designation from U.S. News & World Report — and to be the only labor and delivery hospital in Erie with this recognition. This rating is a testament to the exceptional care that our hospital provides to parents and their babies. Some of the reasons why we received this rating include our commitment to minimizing avoidable C-sections and early deliveries, our low rate of newborn complications, and our high rate of exclusively breastfed babies.

2. Access to OB-GYNs and midwives

We give you the option to choose between a midwife or an OB-GYN for your delivery. Midwives can provide a more natural and personalized approach to childbirth, while OB-GYNs offer specialized medical expertise. Whatever your preference, AHN Saint Vincent has you covered.

3. Helpful pregnancy guidance

At AHN Saint Vincent Hospital, we want you to have the information you need to manage your health and live your healthiest life during and after pregnancy. We provide access to a wide variety of educational videos and articles about pregnancy, labor and delivery, and how to care for yourself and your baby after giving birth.

4. Peace of mind for expert medical care

No one wants to think about the possibility of their newborn needing extra medical attention, but it’s important to know that it’s there if you need it. AHN Saint Vincent has a Level III NICU, which means we can provide expert medical care for premature or sick babies. This will give you peace of mind knowing that both you and your baby are in good hands.

5. Coordinated pediatric care with AHN

By delivering at AHN Saint Vincent, you’ll have access to the top pediatricians in Erie. If you haven’t chosen a provider for your baby before delivery, you’ll have the opportunity to easily do so once your baby arrives.

Whether you’re welcoming your first or your fourth child, we’ll work with you to ensure that your experience is everything you want it to be. But don’t just take our word for it — schedule a free tour today or talk to your AHN OB-GYN or midwife about delivery options.
