The Center for Women and Infants at University of Louisville Hospital maintains one of the largest certified Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) in the region, providing superior care for premature and seriously ill infants.
Along with a Level II and a well-baby nursery, each nursery has the latest equipment and knowledgeable staff to care for the tiniest of patients.
UofL neonatology specialists participate in a state-supported high-risk infant follow-up program, which follows the most critically ill and tiniest premature babies up to eight years to help support the pediatrician’s primary care.
We place a priority on professional and community education. The mother/baby classes offered by The Center for Women and Infants seek to promote the health and wellness of new families.
Our regional clinical care initiative allows us to share our expertise with other health facilities in Kentucky, including our knowledge of high-risk obstetrics.
The partnership provides Kentucky hospitals that may not specialize in high-risk pregnancies an opportunity to collaborate with the leading physicians in maternal-fetal medicine within our organization.
The regionalization plan ensures women in Kentucky are receiving the best possible care during pregnancy.
