High-Risk Pregnancy Care & Neonatal/Pediatric Specialty Care, Denver
No hospital in the region has more experience supporting high-risk pregnancies than the Center for Maternal Fetal Health, where you and your baby will be given coordinated, cohesive specialized care.
If complications occur with mom or baby, the new family doesn’t have to be separated in different hospitals. The Center for Maternal Fetal Health can handle the medical needs of mom and/or baby while keeping the family together.
Many facilities focus on either mom or baby, but we recognize the importance of caring for both with a team of specialists. Our continuum of care offers one geographic location for care as well as a coordinated team of experts who collaborate to offer patients seamless and continuous care.
High Risk Care for Mom
The board-certified, affiliated physicians at the Center for Maternal Fetal Health have been handling high-risk pregnancies longer than anyone-- more than 30 years in this region. Drs. Jeffrey Hanson, Richard Porreco and Steve Rothenberg founded the Center and are part of a team that has delivered more than 55,000 high-risk babies. Few teams in the country have that kind of expertise.
High Risk Care for Baby
Our program offers the highest level of care available in the region for the babies that need the most intensive medical attention and those with congenital defects and conditions. Our 84-bed, Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has a team of compassionate, accomplished support staff and affiliated board-certified neonatal surgeons, pediatric surgeons and specialists who are active in private practice and highly experienced in their fields.
