Default St. Lukes vs. Memorial Hermann Hospital - the Woodlands?

Just moved to the Woodlands and expecting in a few months. Looking for an ob/gyn. Thought I found one, but a day before my appointment they called to confirm and casually mentioned a 'no child policy' in the office which just won't work for me. So now I'm trying to find another ob/gyn. I understand doctors are affiliated with certain hospitals. Just wondering if there's any difference between the level of care between the two hospitals. Which one is more preferred for better care, etc.?

Thanks in advance.

Yes there is a difference in the level of care but I think for childbirth you would be fine with either but for a major surgery or illness, the main med center in Houston is the way to go.

There really is no difference. Whether your ob/gyn has privileges than go ahead and have the baby.

If you need a higher level of care, then they can always ship you to the med center. A nonissue.

Ok thanks. A few people I've met have all recommended Hermann over St. Lukes...was going to go to St. Lukes originally, so then I started wondering if there was a care difference. Good to know.

I find there to be a big difference in suburban hospitals vs. med center but that is personal preference. I would only go to suburban hospitals for something minor or having a baby without complications.
