Paoli hospital vs Crozer Chester medical center

My husband and I are moving to Glen Mills soon and are expecting our first in July. I'm deciding on which hospital to deliver in (so that I can find an OB based on that) and had been told to look at Paoli and Crozer Chester. Any thoughts on pros and cons of each? Any reason I should go with one over the other? Thanks!!

  • I had a great experience at Crozer with my Son. He will be 5 in January. I have only been to Paoli Pointe for RE appt. I will be delivering at Lankenau since I am with the ML system not Crozer system.

  • Con with Crozer is it's located in a sketchier neighborhood. The drive from Glen Mills to Paoli might be longer because of congestion on the roads you will be traveling. Please message me if you need more help. Congratulations and wishing you a happy and healthy remainder of your pregnancy.

  • Another option is Chester County Hospital. It would be closer than Paoli.

  • I'm having my first in January & we're delivering at Riddle (Granite Run OB/GYN Associates - also located within Riddle). I've heard great things from friends who have delivered there recently. I know 2 friends who delivered at Crozer & neither had a great experience - nurses were not as attentive as they hoped, issues getting the epidural to work (although I am sure that can happen anywhere, based on staff)
