Former ESCbC Midwives Resign from St Vincent's Midwifery Practice

The four midwives employed by St. Vincent's Hospital after the closure of Elizabeth Seton have decided to resign. Elissa Marsh and Kate Corona will be leaving the practice as of October 24th and Esme Howard and Stacey Rees will be leaving as of November 14th.

St. Vincent's has expressed its firm support for and commitment to the midwifery program and the hospital administration is actively recruiting three new midwives to replace the four midwives who will leave. Members of the hospital administration will be contacting current clients to make them aware that the midwifery program will continue and that the birth rooms will remain available. The midwives will be available to answer any questions that clients may have during regular prenatal care visits.

Kate Corona will be practicing at Bellevue Hospital, the other midwives are unsure about their future plans.
