Bringing It All Together
New Women’s and Family Center to Combine Services in Central Location
Providence St. Joseph Hospital is excited to be moving forward with the development of the new Helen Caloggero Women’s and Family Center, which is planned to be named after generous donor Marsha Moeller’s late mother. This facility will be located on the corner of Main Street and Stewart Drive, and is slated to open in 2023. It will bring mother-baby services that currently are at nine different locations around the hospital to one central location.
“It is an exciting time for women in our community,” shares Michelle Genova, RN, executive director of Women’s & Children’s Services. “We’ve always placed patient care as the top priority, but the commitment to women has been elevated by our investment in locating so many unique services for women under one roof. The new Center will truly ease the way of our patients with innovative technology, new options for maternity care, convenient access to excellent physicians and certified nurse midwives — all housed in a beautiful addition to our campus.”
A portion of the new facility will be for the Center for Pelvic Health at Providence St. Joseph Hospital, which brings the latest medical and technological advances in women’s health to the community. Also included is an expanded area dedicated to serving women who struggle with pelvic floor disorders. The team includes fellowship‐trained urogynecologists, colorectal surgeons, female urologists and pelvic floor physical therapists, working together to help improve the quality of life for patients.
The new Center will also include a natural birth center, where women can receive the support and individualized care that midwives provide in a home-like setting, and have the freedom to define their childbearing experience. The birth center provides new options for women and their partners to have a natural labor and birth, supported by labor doulas and midwives within the safety of the hospital campus. Prenatal care and follow-up appointments can be completed at the adjacent Midwife Clinic, another convenient service for new families looking for a one-stop experience.
The Foundation plays an integral role in the development of the facility, with a $2.3 million fundraising goal. “Philanthropy is the cornerstone to providing new innovation with which Providence St. Joseph Hospital can continue to serve our community, and adapt to the changing healthcare landscape,” said Michelle. “We appreciate the dedication of hospital donors. Without your help, the mission and the vision of the sisters would not be made real; our goal is to continue with purpose in helping families be healthy and strong.”
