Private Birthing Suites

The Women’s Center at Samaritan Albany General Hospital features private birthing suites, each with an in-room jetted tub, flat screen TV and DVD player, data ports, a pull-out bed for your significant other, soft colors and comfortable furnishings. A large closet in each birthing suite keeps extra equipment hidden until delivery time. Then, all but C-section deliveries may be safely completed in the birthing suite.
