Does anyone know any information about the maternity and newborn care at Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn, NY?

  • I don't know any specifics about the maternity/newborn unit, but I know that hospital does not have a great reputation and is in a not so great neighborhood...Personally, I would prefer to deliver somewhere else.

  • Terrible hospital in a horrible area. I would never choose to deliver there.

    Agree 

     

    Ditto. Try Maimonides or Methodist (which have their own issues, but are better than Brookdale).

  • I'm going to be delivering at Methodist.  I did not have a good experience with their ER at Methodist, so hopefully L&D is better.  I don't know anything about Brookdale though, sorry.

  • Thank you so much for the advice!  I was researching Brookdale and no one liked the ER but I wasn't sure about the L&D.

  • I am also researching brookdale, this is my first baby and my doctor only goes there. I was a little worried because of the terrible reputation of the ER. But then I know someone who went to both Methodist and brookdale and liked brookdale more. Did anyone else actually give birth there?
