Maternity Services at South Nassau: Home to Truly Great Beginnings

When it’s time to start or grow your family, we welcome you to explore the Center for New Beginnings here at South Nassau Communities Hospital. Our experienced, compassionate team includes experts in the health of mothers and babies. We make the care and safety of your family our focus. So you can be assured in the knowledge that you and your baby have access to some of the most advanced and dedicated maternity care available. 

From our experienced physicians and staff to our beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities — including a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) — we’ve taken great care to make sure you can enjoy every moment of this special time. 

Local and National Awards

We’re proud of the care we provide every mother, child and family. And South Nassau’s dedicated staff has garnered attention from many organizations for quality, safety and compassion:

  • We’ve been honored as one of only five hospitals in the country for our dedication to compassionately caring for mothers and newborns in crisis. This honor comes from the New Jersey-based Ambulance Medical Technicians' Children of Hope Foundation.
  • We’ve ranked among the “Top 100 Hospitals” in the nation by Becker’s Hospital Review because of our comprehensive range of maternity services. 
  • We’ve earned the State of New York’s accolades for our initiatives related to providing the best and safest care to our mothers and babies, but our physicians and staff are motivated mainly by the rewards we get every single day as we care for every mother, child and family we serve.
  •  We’ve been designated as a “Baby-Friendly” birth facility by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Our Specialists in Childbirth and Newborn Care

Just as our communities are growing, so is our team in Maternity Services at South Nassau Communities Hospital.
