Birth Center

The Virginia Mason Birth Center

At the Virginia Mason Birth Center, an alliance with CHI Franciscan, we provide a birth experience created with you in mind. Our expert medical team has a unique, collaborative care philosophy where we design and deliver your birth plan together – patient and provider working as a team.

Our new 20,000 square-foot birth center is located at the Floyd & Delores Jones Pavilion (Level 16) at Virginia Mason in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood. The new birth center combines CHI Franciscan’s leadership in patient-driven obstetrics care with Virginia Mason’s focus on quality and innovation, and offers panoramic views of the city, the mountains and Puget Sound.
