Brazos Valley Pavilion
You’re expecting and we’re delivering.
The Brazos Valley Pavilion
Advanced Healthcare for Women
We’re excited to announce the expansion of our women’s services in a new location at College Station Hospital: The Brazos Valley Pavilion for Women. By moving our women’s and pediatrics services exclusively to this location, we are able to provide the latest medical resources, including our OB Hospitalist program, gynecology services, 24/7 anesthesiologists, a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and a partnership with Texas Children’s Hospital neonatologists that allows us to care for more babies locally when they need a higher level of care or specialized treatment. We offer solid science — wrapped in warmth, compassion, and love. Perfectly designed for women and their babies.
All labor and delivery, postpartum, neonatal, pediatric inpatient services, and women’s services will be moving from St. Joseph Regional Hospital in Bryan to the new Brazos Valley Pavilion at College Station Hospital. Our current patients will be able to continue to see their same physicians at this new location. With more room and more resources, this expansion into The Brazos Valley Pavilion means the most innovative care will not only be the most experienced in the region, it also offers the most access close to home.
- OB Hospitalist Program (24/7 OB physicians in house)
- 24/7 Anesthesiologists on site
- Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
- Partnership With Texas Children’s Hospital’s Neonatologists
- Private NICU Rooms

Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be any changes to billing or insurances accepted as a result of this move?
No changes are expected related to billing or insurances accepted as a result of this move. Bryan and College Station Hospital currently accept all of the same insurance products.
What is the check-in/registration process?
Patients with a delivery date of two weeks before or two weeks after the move in date at our new location will need to be prepared to deliver at either hospital. Patients can pre-register by downloading the forms from our website at st-joseph.org/womens-services. Patients who have a due date of February 8, 2021 or later will deliver in our new Brazos Valley Pavilion for Women in College Station Hospital. Patient registration will not change with this move, and you will still need to pre-register.
How do I access the facility?
The Brazos Valley Pavilion for Women will be located on the 3rd floor at College Station Hospital. Access to the pavilion is via the South Elevators in the Outpatient Surgery waiting area. Mothers coming to the hospital to deliver should use the Emergency Department entrance. Visitors and caregivers should use the Outpatient Surgery entrance. After hours, or when screening stations are closed, visitors and patients must use the Emergency Department entrance.
Will you communicate these changes to my physician?
Yes, we are working with all physicians and providers on medical staff who care for our patients and utilize women’s services. Physicians and their office staff will receive detailed information for their patients as well. As our operational plans become more solidified, we will update patients and physician offices.
Will you still offer newborn photography?
Yes, Mom365 will also make this move, and be available at College Station Hospital.
Will you still offer low intervention birthing as an option?
Yes, low intervention birthing will still be supported for expectant mothers at St. Joseph Health. The low intervention birthing environment will be available in all of our labor and delivery rooms in our new location. For more information, please contact our Maternity Services team.
Will you still offer breastfeeding assistance/resources?
Yes, we will continue to offer the same resources and care that our patients are accustomed to getting at Regional Hospital in Bryan.
Will you still offer Ronald McDonald House Charities assistance?
Yes, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas offers the same programs, Family Rooms and Happy Wheels Cart, in both of our hospitals. These services will remain available to our patients.
Will you still deliver babies in Bryan at Regional Hospital?
No, unfortunately having this service at both hospitals is not financially feasible. Once we move, women’s services including maternity, gynecology and pediatrics will be available at College Station Hospital.
Will we still have a NICU?
Our NICU services and capabilities will remain and we will continue our relationship with Texas Children's Hospital neonatologists, who care for our newborns, both in the well-baby nursery and the NICU. We are currently working toward our Level III NICU accreditation. When we move, we will upgrade to 13 private NICU beds for 26 weeks and above newborns, with additional space for well babies.
What is your current visitation policy for maternity and NICU patients?
Patients going to Labor & Delivery are allowed one designated vistor approved by the L&D team. A visitor pass will be provided by the L&D staff daily. NICU visitation allows parents who have been pre-approved by NICU staff to visit. Contact the NICU for more information.
