Partners in Newborn Intensive Care
Community Memorial Hospital’s Birthing Center is a key healthcare resource for expectant and new mothers. The Center’s state-of-the-art Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) offers critical care to high-risk newborns.
Recently, Community Memorial brought on Medical College of Wisconsin neonatologists to provide services in our Birthing Center. This is the same group providing such services at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. The new arrangement offers enhanced continuity of care.
Medical College of Wisconsin perinatologists currently provide care for women with high-risk pregnancies at Community Memorial. Infant care can now easily be transitioned from the mother’s Medical College of Wisconsin perinatologist and her primary doctor to a Medical College of Wisconsin neonatologist right at Community Memorial.
Community Memorial will also have Medical College of Wisconsin neonatology fellows available at various times and neonatal nurse practitioners on-site 24 hours each day, making Community Memorial’s NICU well staffed to handle high-risk newborns.
Through this partnership, patients have immediate access to the state’s top specialists and the highest level of prenatal and newborn care — including resources such as the Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin Fetal Concerns Program — while remaining in the care of their own physicians and delivering their babies at Community Memorial Hospital.
