We regularly treat patients with infectious diseases and our clinical teams are highly trained in infection prevention protocols. Ascension is closely monitoring COVID‐19 developments and working daily in partnership with our local and state health departments and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We will share relevant updates with you by email. In the meantime, please visit www.setonbaby.com to watch a video tour of our maternity unit.
