Although most women have normal deliveries, you can take comfort in knowing that AtlantiCare has the staff and technology to deal with complications, should they arise.
AtlantiCare is the only medical center in the region with a full-time maternal-fetal medicine program. The specialist team works to identify potential complications before a baby is born by using:
Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is staffed by CHOP neonatologists. So if there are complications during birth, you can rest assured your baby will receive the best care possible.
We provide 24-hour-a-day care by highly trained CHOP neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners, allowing you and your child access to on site experts if an emergency or complication arises. So, when a baby is born prematurely or with medical complications at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, the child can remain here for care – close to home and family. The Center for Childbirth even provides a room where parents can stay overnight, if they choose.
