After the birth of your child you will be asked to assist an associate from Sturgis Hospital in completing your baby's birth certificate. Our staff is very knowledgeable in the laws concerning birth certificates and can also assist with establishing legal paternity. Any questions you might have regarding these processes can be addressed with an associate in Health Information Management at (269) 659-4416.
To obtain a certified copy of your baby's birth certificate please contact the St. Joseph County Clerk's office at (269) 467-5602. The cost for the birth certificate as of January 1, 2007 is $13.00 for the first copy.
