"I think moms-to-be will find it's not only patient-friendly, but that they'll receive good care when they come to St. Anthony's," said obstetrician/gynecologist James Brennan, M.D., Chairman of the OB/GYN department. "Our caregivers don't treat our patients as numbers. That's one of the reasons I send my patients to St. Anthony's."
