The Joyce Stock Snuggery

In November 2017, Glens Falls Hospital unveiled the new Joyce Stock Snuggery, the warmest, most welcoming and state of the art birthing unit in the region. We’ve been hard at work completing more than $5 million in renovations and creating the perfect place for your family to welcome its new addition.

In its first 31 years, the Snuggery was the setting for more than 41,000 births. Each of them received the same outstanding, personalized care the Snuggery has become synonymous with.

Here are just some of the additions and upgrades we have made to the Snuggery to help provide you with the finest experience in the finest setting.

• 20 completely remodeled patient rooms, featuring outstanding design and décor, individual temperature controls and the latest in birthing technology and equipment

• A newly expanded special care nursery, providing outstanding care for newborns requiring more advanced care, such as premature and post-mature infants

• An all new family and friends waiting room

• A new nurses’ station and reconfiguration of traffic flow to provide easier, faster travel between patient rooms for family and staff

• Upgraded, energy-efficient lighting specially designed to complement birthing units

In addition, the Snuggery was a pioneer in Single-room Labor-Delivery-Recovery-Postpartum care, and continues that tradition of care today. At The Snuggery, each woman remains in the same private guest room for all phases of the birthing process*. Single-room care is found to be more relaxing and less stressful for mothers than having to be moved from one room to another, as some hospitals continue to do.

Want to know more? Call 518-926-6095 to schedule a tour of the Snuggery or speak to your obstetrician. Two area obstetrical practices deliver babies at The Snuggery: Women’s Care in Obstetrics & Gynecology with offices in Saratoga and Glens Falls; and North Country Obstetrics & Gynecology of Queensbury. Both practices offer care by physicians and midwives. Women wishing to give birth at The Snuggery are encouraged to develop a relationship with a provider at one of these practices prior to becoming pregnant.

* In instances when a cesarean section is necessary, the mother is temporarily taken to an operating room on the same floor and returned to a private room as soon as she has recovered from anesthesia.
