Epidural pain management now available for labor and delivery at Chenango Memorial Hospital

An additional pain management option is now available to mothers during labor and delivery at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital.  According to Dr. Michael Trevisani, Vice President Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital, laboring mothers may now choose to have an epidural when they deliver at the local facility. “This is in addition to other pain relief options including intrathecal pain blocks.”

Dr. Trevisani explained that patients should discuss pain management options with their obstetrician as they prepare for their eventual delivery and commented, “We are happy to add this new option to the numerous advantages offered to prenatal patients at our UHS facilities.” 

In addition to pain management options for birthing, the Women’s Health Center and Maternity Center at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital offer the services of five obstetrician/gynecologists including a urogynecologist.  Added maternity services include childbirth education, breastfeeding education and support; nutritional counseling; and genetic counseling and referrals.

Women who plan to deliver at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital have the convenience of prenatal care at the UHS Women’s Health Center in the hospital at 179 N. Broad Street in Norwich or at UHS Primary Care in Sidney at 44 Pearl Street. 

UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital is a member of UHS, a locally owned, not-for-profit, 916-bed hospital and health care system serving the Greater Binghamton region from more than 40 locations around New York’s Southern Tier.
