Village Maternity MD is now Village Obstetrics Prenatal Pathway

Village Obstetrics presents a specialized prenatal program in partnership with Metropolitan Hospital, formerly known as Village Maternity MD. Within this prenatal pathway, your entire prenatal care will be overseen by Doctors Mussalli and Worth. When it comes to labor and delivery, you will be supported by a dedicated team comprising doctors and midwives at Metropolitan Hospital. This collaborative approach ensures comprehensive and personalized care throughout your pregnancy journey.


Notably, Metropolitan boasts one of the lowest cesarean section rates in NYC. Additionally, it stands out for having the least overcrowding among all NYC sites. The hospital has a rich history of fostering collaborative pregnancy care.
