Good Samaritan Hospital earned a 2017 Gold Medal for “Best Birth Center” and “Best Hospital in Silicon Valley” in the recently published Bay Area Parent “Best of the Best” issue. The dual accolades were awarded based on votes from the magazine’s readers, and join Good Samaritan Hospital’s decades-long awards for “Best Place to Have a Baby” and “Family Favorite Hospital.” The hospital is already in the “Best of the Best” Hall of Fame for Silicon Valley.

“I would like to thank our community members, who year after year, have expressed their high opinion of Good Samaritan Hospital, “said Joe DeSchryver, CEO of Good Samaritan Hospital. “We know when parents choose our hospital they are trusting our highly-trained staff of physicians, nurses and experts to provide safe and compassionate health care and individualized attention at this very special time in their family’s life.”

Good Samaritan Hospital also continues to invest in its Women’s & Children’s Services. A total of $15 million has recently been allocated to renovate its Level III NICU, plus the Labor and Delivery and Antepartum departments.

More than 100,000 babies have been born at Good Samaritan Hospital since 1965, and the birthing center continues to be sought after by families throughout the Silicon Valley.

The hospital’s labor and delivery suites are designed to feel like home, including private bathrooms and comfortable furnishings. Highly trained neonatal intensive care and obstetric teams are available 24 hours a day. Good Samaritan Hospital also recognizes the importance of mother and baby bonding, allowing newborns to share the same room as their mothers immediately after delivery.

Expectant families will find numerous classes offered at Good Samaritan Hospital such as childbirth classes, breastfeeding, new mother support groups, and perinatal mood support groups. Tours of the birthing center are free.
