The first phase of the $83-million St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas opened last week with state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms and cesarean section surgical suites, a new women’s diagnostic imaging center and a Breast Cancer Resource Center. The facility is the region’s first women’s hospital.

The first phase of the $83-million St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas opened last week with state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms and cesarean section surgical suites, a new women’s diagnostic imaging center and a Breast Cancer Resource Center. The facility is the region’s first women’s hospital.

The $83-million St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas is slated for final completion in April of 2009. Upon completion next year, the facility will encompass three stories and will be engineered to expand to eight stories, as needed.

The St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas is connected via a sky bridge to the second floor of the main St. David’s North Austin Medical Center where the renovated/expanded postpartum rooms and expanded Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will be located.

With this new facility, St. David’s North Austin Medical Center’s capacity for women’s and maternity services will increase dramatically.

Physician Groups

Our growth in women’s services at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center started with the longtime commitment of the Austin Diagnostic Clinic OB/GYN physicians and has continued with the addition of the Renaissance Women’s Group to our family of doctors in 2001, and more recently with groups such as OB/GYN North; as well as a number of independent OB/GYN physicians.

We are delighted to note that the Austin Area OB/GYN group of physicians will be joining our physician team in April. They are a perfect complement to the highly respected OB/GYNs that have been practicing here for years.

Retail Space

Upon completion of the St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas in April of 2009, it will include 5,500 square feet of retail space with stores tailored to women’s needs and a coffee shop. We are not yet announcing those retailers or the coffee shop.

Midwife Program

Dr. Christina Sebestyn is the only OB/GYN in Austin to provide a midwife program. We are pleased that Dr. Sebestyn and her midwives have practiced exclusively at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center and will continue to do so at the new St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas. This is one of many factors that set this facility apart from others, making it the premiere women’s hospital in the area.
