At Franciscan St. Anthony Health - Crown Point we cherish and celebrate the gift of new life. We believe each birth experience is miraculous and unique, each mother and baby special. That’s why we developed The Birth Place – to give our mothers more choices for a fulfilling birth experience.
The Birth Place Features & Services
The birth experience involves more than a room. We focus on being “mother-baby” friendly. Fathers are welcome to stay with the mother and baby as much as they wish. Moms can choose “rooming-in” to take care of their baby. Siblings and grandparents are encouraged to visit the family’s newest member.
Our highly skilled and compassionate nursing staff provides a level of care that is both personal and professional. And, our programs are always under review to meet the changing needs of our mothers.

- Family-centered philosophy
