St. Joseph Health to Move Women’s, Pediatric Services to College Station Hospital
(December 8, 2020 – Bryan, TX) St. Joseph Health has finalized a move date for the relocation of women’s services to College Station Hospital, previously College Station Medical Center, located at 1604 Rock Prairie Road. The Brazos Valley Pavilion for Women will officially operate in College Station Hospital beginning Monday, February 8, 2021.
The Brazos Valley Pavilion for Women will be a one-of-a-kind healthcare resource dedicated to women. Women’s services consists of labor & delivery, post-partum, nursery and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), in-pediatric care and gynecological services. All of these services will move from Regional Hospital (Bryan) to College Station Hospital. Moving these services to College Station Hospital allows St. Joseph offer patients and their families a more comforting environment. The location provides convenient parking and easier access to the facility.
With this move, St. Joseph Health will expand the space and privacy of our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to all-private NICU rooms. Private NICU rooms improve the safety of our tiniest patients by limiting exposure and providing a better experience for patient and family visitation. This also creates a more soothing healing environment. Our Level II NICU accreditation will remain and we will continue the existing relationship with Texas Children’s Hospital Neonatologists, who care for our newborns, both in the nursery and the NICU.
“We believe everyone deserves access to quality, affordable care, and services, and this change aligns with our mission of emphasizing human dignity and social justice while creating healthier communities,” said Theron Park, President and CEO of St. Joseph Health. “We will continue to care for the most vulnerable in our communities, but by moving this service to College Station Hospital, we improve accessibility to it. As with anything we do regarding patient care, we kept our mission and values at the forefront of this decision.”
This also increases space and growth opportunities at Regional Hospital in Bryan, allowing St. Joseph Health to offer new services to the community.
