St. John West Shore dedication ceremony for holistic birthing suite

St. John West Shore's Holistic Birthing Center is first of its kind in Northeast Ohio. The Holistic Birthing Center was designed for healthy, low-risk mothers and healthy babies.

A dedication ceremony was held August 5th, Wednesday evening, where the center was blessed. For more information click here.
