Hospital Affiliation

Downtown Women OB/GYN is proud to be affiliated with Tisch Hospital at the New York University Langone Medical Center located at 31st Street and First Avenue in Manhattan.   As one of the preeminent medical centers in the country, we feel fortunate in our association with the Center and its incomparable staff of health care professionals.

NYU Langone Medical Center has received the prestigious Magnet Award for nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.  Only two percent of the hospitals in the country have earned this coveted award.  Independently sponsored research shows that Magnet facilities have lower mortality rates, shorter lengths of stay, increased patient satisfaction and increased retention and recruitment rates among nurses – all of which benefits patients and practitioners alike.

Tisch Hospital also carries the highly-coveted Baby-Friendly designation.  This award was created by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI), a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO), and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to encourage and recognize hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding.

Recently renovated, the labor floor at Tisch boasts spacious and comfortable labor, delivery, and recovery rooms equipped with showers, televisions, stereos, birthing balls, and mirrors.  Tours of the facility for expectant parents are encouraged and offered free of charge. For more information about having your baby at NYU, please visit the following link: http://www.nyubaby.org/
