When Michael and Rachel Smith were deciding where to deliver their first son, it was an easy choice. "You can't beat the convenience and amazing accommodations, but it's also the people that make Buffalo Hospital outstanding," said Rachel. "Your nurses and doctors care for you not only as a patient, but as a neighbor."

The Smiths wanted the births of their children to be private, intimate and special. "Our entire care team at Buffalo was positive and offered the perfect balance of privacy with close monitoring of my condition," said Rachel.

The doctors and nurses at Buffalo Hospital's Birth Center blend leading technology and techniques with personalized care. When Rachel was faced with the challenging decision of how to deliver her second child, Teri McNelis, MD, of Allina Health Clinic — Buffalo sat her down and helped her weigh the options both as a health care professional and as a mother. "I was able to feel comfortable and confident with my decision," said Rachel. "It's the sincerity of their care that truly takes my breath away."
