Default Hospitals to deliver at

Anyone have any recommendations for which of these two hospitals to deliver at? Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Alliance or Baylor Scott and White Grapevine are the two options we have. Anyone have any positive or negative experience at either of these hospitals, regardless of the department you were in? Obviously if you have had experience in their labor and delivery unit and/or NICU, that info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks GS!

Never had a delivery at either but have been to both ER's with wife and kids and prefer grapevine. Both my kids were born at Medical City Dallas.

Been to the er at grapevine and it was good

My wife delivered at Harris Southwest and their NICU team was incredible and made that experience a little more calm. I’d expect them to have the same standards across their system.

Our first born was delivered at Baylor Grapevine and our second was born at Alliance. Had a good experience with both. Preferred Alliance because it was just a few miles from the house so it made it easier to make quick trips back and forth if needed.

Good feedback we are touring grapevine now. They are both equidistant from the house, so it really comes down to which one we end up preferring more.

When you asked your OB/GYN, which one did they recommend?

I did most of my rotations at Baylor Grapevine, including labor and delivery, when I was in Paramedic school and really liked the hospital. As they have continued to add and build it has only gotten better. Have never been Methodist Alliance though.

One of the guys I work with his wife is one of the lactation specialists at Alliance. Like I said both were good, I think my wife preferred alliance but not 100% certain. It's all going to depend on the nurse on what type of experience you will have.

After touring, Baylor Grapevine has some really good stuff. We really enjoyed it. Will go to Alliance in the next few weeks.

To compare I try to go by worst case sceniaro. For baby, both are level 3 NICUs (just in case NICU is needed) and both have ONE other higher level (level 4) NICU in their system so I'd say they are about equal. As far as mom, there are definitely more Texas Health facilities in the DFW area if something happened and she needed a higher level of care.

I've never been to either hospital but I'd be doing Texas Health simply because I work for them and my deductibles and copays are lower.

My wife was supposed to deliver at grapevine but my son had other ideas so we had to go to HEB in Bedford and we didn't have the best experience. I have been to the ER at grapevine a few times and have had nothing but good experiences.

Awesome insight! Thank you! For what it's worth, my wife is a NICU nurse at Cook Children's, so if we need level 4, we would transport to them.

Our first was delivered at Baylor Grapevine. Went great, no complaints. Nurses were awesome.

Second was downtown at Harris, we could have went with Alliance but my wife decided she didn't want to go there even though it was a little closer for us. She works in the medical field and chose to go downtown. The only reason we didn't go back to Grapevine was insurance related.

I have no clue about NICUs and such, but the fire department I work for transports multiple patients to Baylor Grapevine daily. If Iím ever hurt, thatís where I want to go. Great hospital!

Both of my girls were delivered at Alliance. Awesome hospital and staff.
My wife goes to DR Webster. She is top notch. No BS and took care of all our needs. She made sure she was there to deliver even though she wasnít on call.
They have a great kitchen and brick pizza oven.

I live right by Alliance Harris and we decided to use Grapevine. It was a good facility. Not a lot of great reports about Alliance from our friends that used it.

Grapevine.

Iím a bit biased as my wife used to be the L&D manger there but transferred to All Saints to be closer to where we live now.

My daughter is currently an L&D nurse at Grapevine.

Visited both. Blown away by Alliance. I think the key difference is we believe that while Alliance is certainly awesome, Grapevine's nurses may be more experienced due to the fact it has been around longer. Although the drive is within a 1/4 mile difference in length, we've got the 2nd option of using Grapevine highway if we have to get there in a hurry. Last, our pediatrician is able to work out of Grapevine and can't go to Alliance. So we're not set in stone, but leaning towards Baylor Grapevine.

So, TTT, does anyone else have any input in this? Would love to hear everyone's opinions.

We live .1 miles from Alliance and delivered at Grapevine due to her Doctor and the quality of the staff. My wife works with a ton of local teachers and to be honest they arenít reporting great experiences at Alliance.
