High-Risk Obstetrical Unit
Whether your pregnancy is determined to be
high-risk from the beginning or complications arise later on, St.Vincent
Women's Hospital is prepared to be the hospital of choice for mothers and babies
in high-risk situations. We are the only hospital in Indiana with the highest level of obstetric care (Level 3 and
Newborn Intensive Care Level 3c) in one location. Our team of physicians
including Maternal-Fetal Medicine, neonatologists and pediatric sub-specialists
works together to deliver a comprehensive continuum of care for expectant
mothers, new moms and newborns.
At St.Vincent Women's
Hospital we provide comfortable, comprehensive care for women experiencing
obstetric and/or medical challenges that require
hospitalization. Our High-Risk Obstetrical Unit (HRU) achieved its disease-specific
certification in high-risk obstetrics by The Joint Commission - only the second
in the U.S. to achieve such designation. We offer inpatient holistic care by a highly experience nursing staff
for intensive monitoring of mother and baby for short-term and extended stays.
Indiana’s largest team of board-certified Maternal-Fetal
Medicine specialists providing 24/7 coverage, certified ultrasonographers
(AIUM), obstetricians, experienced labor and delivery and high-risk OB nurses, and
neonatalogists from our Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are all
essential components of our high-risk perinatal services. Other members of our
health care team include social services, pastoral care, pharmacy, dietitians,
lactation consultants, case management representatives,
and respiratory, physical and occupational therapists.
