St. Vincent's Women's Services

Maternity Services

We've been delivering Jacksonville's babies for more than 100 years!

Today, we deliver approximately 2,500 babies each year. Our expert and caring staff has a passion for taking care of new moms and babies. Our goal is to make sure you have the birthing experience you want.


Peace Of Mind

Each expectant mother hopes everything will go smoothly with the delivery of her child. But sometimes a newborn, especially one born too early, will need special care.

Referred to as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU, our unit is a Level 2 Regional Care Center. It is fully equipped to care for premature or ill babies, and we can transport any baby who needs additional care or surgery to other hospitals.

Heart Disease

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American women and accounts for one in every three deaths.

St. Vincent's HealthCare has become one of the leaders in educating women and their loved ones on how to identify heart attacks in women and knowing when and what questions to ask about their hearts. Learn more about Women & Heart Disease.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Today, a less invasive surgical treatment option is available for treating a variety of gynecologic conditions.

For most patients, minimally invasive procedures performed with the da Vinci Surgical System can offer numerous potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Less pain and scarring
    • Less risk of infection
    • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
    • Faster recovery
    • Quicker return to normal activities

Osteoporosis Care

Osteoporosis is a silent disease that causes bones to become weak, thin, and brittle, causing them to break easily.
