Alice Hyde is moving to a regional care approach for our child birth services. While we will continue to provide Women’s Health Services right here in Malone, as of Monday, March 28, 2022 our Family Maternity Center will no longer perform scheduled births.

Our plan is to connect with you by phone, if we haven’t already, to:

  • Let you know that where you give birth is your decision.
  • Talk about your care plan.
  • Share information on the Women’s Health Services that we will continue to offer – including care for mothers before and after giving birth.
  • Help you find a hospital with the right level of care for you and your baby.
  • Make sure you or your doctor have access to your medical record.

The number of babies born in our Family Maternity Center dropped nearly 40% from 2019 to 2021. This makes it tough for our Maternity Team to remain prepared for complex challenges that can come up during pregnancy.

By focusing on Women’s Health Services before and after childbirth and building a strong, regional program through collaboration with our partners across northern New York and The UVM Health Network, we can provide the care you need now and in the future, with our talented and compassionate care team.  And of course, our Emergency Department is always ready to give moms and babies the care they need in an emergency situation.

We will continue to share information and updates on this change, and are also making information available on this page. Please reach out to your health care provider with any questions.
