St. Vincent Healthcare: Elizabeth Seton Clinic Announces 5000th Baby Delivered
May 28, 2009
St. Vincent Healthcare is proud to announce, after 19 years of quality and excellence in Prenatal, Postnatal and Well Woman Care, the St. Vincent Healthcare Elizabeth Seton Clinic Team has delivered its 5000th baby. On April 26th at 2:24am Austin Troy Saylor was born in the St. Vincent Healthcare Labor and Delivery Department
. A healthy baby boy, Austin weighed in at 8 pounds 12 ounces and was 22 inches long. Mom, Tara Young, and dad, Troy Saylor, of Laurel, couldn’t have been happier. “The Elizabeth Seton midwives are wonderful,” said Tara, “they not only take great care of us moms, but also the rest of our family. There’s a closeness that we haven’t found anywhere else.”
Patients at the Elizabeth Seton Clinic
are cared for by Certified Nurse Midwives and a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner specially trained in all aspects of maternity care – prenatal, labor and delivery, and postpartum care.
The St. Vincent Healthcare Elizabeth Seton Clinic is a cooperative effort between St. Vincent Healthcare Certified Nurse Midwives, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners and local OB/GYN physicians. This team provides care for women who choose to experience childbirth through hospital-based Midwifery and for the community’s women with limited incomes who might otherwise receive little or no prenatal care. No one will be denied medical attention because they are unable to pay.
The St. Vincent Healthcare Elizabeth Seton Clinic and the Billings independent Obstetricians at Big Sky OB/GYN and Billings OB/GYN Associates have been quietly, efficiently, and compassionately solving the problems of limited access to care and its effect on infant prematurity for nearly 20 years; an effort that is successfully impacting lives every day. For more information on certified nurse midwives or care at the Clinic, call 406-237-3620.
St. Elizabeth Bayley Seton
Mother Seton, the first recognized American saint, originated the American parochial school system. A widow with five young children, she opened the first school in Emmitsburg Maryland, in 1808. She established a small community of women to staff the school, thus founding the Sisters of Charity order in the United States. Six North American religious orders trace their heritage to Mother Seton, as do an orphanage, schools and hospitals in the Boston area.
