As far as I’m concerned Mercy Hospital is the best kept secret in Pittsburgh when it comes to labor and delivery.
I simply cannot say enough about their tremendous team of doctors, nurses, and staff. I have had the privilege of delivering all four of my children there and thank them all from the bottom of my heart for their dedication to their professions and care and commitment to mothers and babies.
Dr. Michael Lupinetti has been my OB/GYN for nearly fifteen years. He is not only a phenomenal physician, but also an amazing person who cares for his patients with the utmost respect and gentility. Over the years, he has cared for me during the most important times of my life. He is the very best at his craft and Frank and I will forever be grateful to him. We will consider him family always. Additionally, I cannot say enough about his office nurses and staff, who have also treated us like family and we thank them for their phenomenal care and support as well.
Dr. Lupinetti practices with UPMC-Greater Pittsburgh OB/GYN. He also works closely with Dr. Stephanie Nicholas, who delivered one of my twins as well as our newest addition just a few weeks ago. She is very focused and committed to her patients as well. Frank and I have always been amazed by her attention to detail and professionalism. I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention and thank Dr. David Badway, who delivered our son over four years ago. He will always hold a special place in our hearts.
The nursing staff at Mercy still consists of many of the same team members that we met over four years ago! (That says something in an of itself!) Both Frank and I truly felt at home when we walked into the labor and delivery wing this past time. We were welcomed with hugs and best wishes from some of the same nurses that helped bring our other three children into the world. We were also met by some new faces, who were just as lovely, kind, and professional.
In addition to the personnel, Mercy has an excellent facility. The rooms are large, clean, and well appointed. Unless your circumstances warrant an operating room for delivery, absolutely everything takes place in your initial room. Labor, deliver, and post-delivery care are all in one room, allowing mother and baby to experience a seamless, calm and peaceful recovery. Baby barely leaves mom’s side unless mom needs some rest. It is just a wonderful experience.
To everyone associated with Mercy Hospital’s Labor and Delivery team, we thank you and commend you on your hard work, long hours, and dedicated hearts. You are all angels among us and we have been honored to be a part of your journey.
