We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
From Lactation Services to the NICU, We Have You Both Covered
After the birth of your child, it’s important that you have time to recover in comfort and ensure you and your baby receive the care you need. At Carondelet St. Joseph’s Hospital and Holy Cross Hospitals you and your baby will be well taken
care of during your stay.
At Carondelet St. Joseph’s, we follow an approach known as Couplet Care that ensures you and your baby are able to stay together as much as possible to help deepen your bond.
Every step of the way, you’ll be supported by compassionate and knowledgeable staff who have expertise in caring for newborns.
For mothers wanting to breastfeed, we offer Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) with extensive clinical knowledge and expertise to provide the support and education you need.
If you’d prefer to learn about breastfeeding before your hospital stay, we offer the Breastfeeding Basics class taught by a Lactation Consultant. When you’re in the hospital, a Lactation Consultant can come to your room to answer your questions
and assist you with breastfeeding.
Our goal at Carondelet is to promote successful breastfeeding. After your hospital stay, you are welcome to attend our breastfeeding support group for additional advice or simply to share your experience.
