Gilroy’s Saint Louise Regional Hospital to close labor and delivery services
The Mercury News

In the first casualty since a controversial hospital sale fell through, Gilroy’s only maternity ward is shutting down, forcing expectant parents to drive to San Jose or Hollister for deliveries.

Saint Louise Regional Hospital announced Tuesday it is closing its maternity and pediatric services within three months as its financially troubled owner Daughters of Charity Health System struggles to find a buyer after the collapse of a deal last month to sell its six hospitals. Saint Louise delivers about 50 babies a month.
