Oswego Health’s maternity center offers families a comfortable and homey environment, featuring attractive private rooms, each with its own bathroom containing a large soaking tub. This environment is complemented by the latest technology. A caring and knowledgeable staff oversees the entire family's needs. The maternity center recently unveiled a new C-section recovery room for new mothers and their babies, offering a quicker bonding experience for the new family.

In 2016, the maternity center was recognized for providing safe and high quality care to new mothers and their babies. The center was presented with the Obstetrical Improvement Project Quality Improvement Award by the New York State Perinatal Quality Collaborative (NYSPQC), which in partnership with the state Department of Health, aims to provide the best and safest care for women and infants in the state.
