Renovated Glens Falls Birthing Unit Opens

GLENS FALLS – The new Joyce Stock Snuggery family-centered birthing unit is now fully open at Glens Falls Hospital.

The popular unit, which first opened in 1985, underwent a $5 million renovation over the past 12 months. It now features 20 completely remodeled labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum care rooms, where families experience all phases of the birthing process in privacy and comfort; an expanded and enhanced Special Care Nursery for newborns requiring advanced care; a larger waiting area; two new nurses’ stations; and reconfigured hallways, improving traffic flow for staff and providing easier travel between patient rooms and operating rooms for unplanned cesarean sections.

Two area obstetrical practices deliver at the Joyce Stock Snuggery: Women’s Care in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and North Country Obstetrics and Gynecology. 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.

The Joyce Stock Snuggery is named in honor of a former Glens Falls Hospital nurse and local businesswoman, whose son and daughter-in-law made a $1 million gift to the renovation project in her memory through their Bill and Joanne Stock Foundation.

Bill Stock, a 1979 graduate of Glens Falls High School who now lives in Phoenix, Arizona, has enjoyed a highly successful career as an engineer and entrepreneur.

Other major donors to the capital campaign include Stewart’s Shops and the Dake family at $250,000; the David S. and Janet R. Sheridan Foundation at $250,000; the Sandy Hill Foundation at $200,000; the Charles R. Wood Foundation at $100,000; Philip H. and Susan K. Morse at $100,000; and Irving Tissue at $100,000.
