Safety & Security

We are vigilant about safety and security for all of our patients and take a number of safety measures to ensure a positive childbirth experience.

Special Care Nursery

The Joyce Stock Snuggery includes a 10-bed Special Care Nursery for late premature infants, as well as those with breathing or feeding difficulties or infections.

Occasionally, a baby will need to be transferred to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Albany Medical Center (our region's only Level 4-the highest level-NICU) in Albany. Most often, these babies return to Glens Falls Hospital when their conditions have stabilized.

Childbirth in the Albany Med Health System

In addition to Glens Falls Hospital, childbirth centers in the Albany Med Health System include The Birth Place at Albany Medical Center and the Maternity Care Unit at Saratoga Hospital.
