We're going to st joes, our friend works there and I've only heard good things about it.
ONe thing I've heard about hospitals is they would shift you from room to room after you check in (like pre-delivery you would be in one and once they think you are ready they would wheel you into the labor room) or something. Do you know anything about it? Personally, once I check in I just want everything to be done in one room and check out..be done with it.
let me know ..thanks :)
If you have a difficult pregnancy st. Luke's is the way to go.
Diffcult or not, i am not sure yet. We live in Parker but our Doc is in Downtown and hence having to choose between PBSL / St. Joes.
Have you been there before? How was your experience?
My mom works in the NICU at St. Joes and I know all the high risk and regular l&d nurses, go St. Joes! :)
I delivered my two girls at St. Joe's. I wasn't moved around...just in the birthing suite for labor and delivery, then into the Mother/Baby Unit afterwards.
The only things I really didn't like about it is that I never saw my regular OB, and honestly don't even know the name of the doctor who 'caught' DD2, and they seemed kind of cold (doctors, not the nurses, they were great!). They also questioned my birth plan (I was induced but didn't want pain meds), and didn't really seem to know how to handle a natural birth.
As for costs, my first was in the NICU for 4 days, and my cost was $300. My second, I was in and out in 24 hours and it cost us $2400...it's all dependent on your insurance.
