Our Team Approach
We use a team-based approach to provide compassionate, expert care for complicated pregnancies. Your high-risk pregnancy will be reviewed by our entire multidisciplinary team, tapping into our team members’ range of experience and expertise.
We collaborate with specialists across our Obstetrics & Gynecology department to provide exactly the prenatal care you need based on your unique circumstances.
We care for many maternal and fetal complications that may require complex care coordination for labor and delivery. We partner with dedicated obstetric anesthesiologists, neonatologists, critical care specialists and many other specialists to provide safe labor and delivery for every parent and baby. With the Neonatology team and Level III Intensive Care Nursery (ICN), we are one of the few area hospitals that can provide intensive care for both high-risk parents and newborns.
