Welcome your baby to the family with support from ours.
French Hospital Medical Center is nationally recognized for quality and safety, located along the Central Coast in beautiful San Luis Obispo, California. We take pride in serving our community, in particular, the care and service we provide to both expectant mothers and babies at our Stollmeyer Family Birthing Center.
Newsweek announced French Hospital Medical Center was among the 233 hospitals nationwide that received the prestigious Best Maternity Hospitals 2020. The hospital is among only 46 in California to be recognized. The distinction identifies facilities that have excelled in providing care to mothers, newborns and their families, as verified by the 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Survey.
Hospitals named as a Best Maternity Care Hospital have fully met The Leapfrog Group’s standards for maternity care on evidence-based, nationally standardized metrics. The tough standards have been established by Leapfrog’s national expert panel. This includes lower rates of early elective delivery, NTSV C-section, and episiotomy, as well as compliance with process measures including newborn bilirubin screening prior to discharge and blood clot prevention techniques for mothers delivering via C-section.
Expectant moms can feel confident their care will be excellent when delivering at our birthing center.
At French Hospital Medical Center, we’re all about babies. We love them! And we work to make your experience as comfortable as possible because you love them, too. Our Family Birthing Center promises labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum all in one room, making it much easier on new moms.
French Hospital Medical Center offers advanced neonatal care for the tiniest of patients at the Stollmeyer Family Birthing Center. The center’s Acute Care Nursery offers bedside neonatal nursing staff, neonatologists, anesthesiologists, and an onsite neonatal resuscitation team to stabilize babies born near term.
We emphasize breastfeeding at French Family Birthing Center, and to help, we offer mothers and families extensive information while also helping moms achieve the confidence and the skills necessary to successfully breastfeed their babies.
