St. Louis Fetal Care Institute services are available at two convenient locations. SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center and SSM St. Mary’s Health Center partner to offer full fetal care services. To complete this full spectrum of fetal care, the Saint Louis University School of Medicine (Departments of OBGYN, Women’s Health, Surgery and Pediatrics) provides surgeons and experts specializing in the care of babies and children with the most complex surgical cases.
SSM St. Mary’s Health Center specializes in high-risk services (tertiary maternal-fetal care) for expectant mothers. Focusing on complicated deliveries for twins, triplets and quads, the SSM Perinatal Center at St. Mary’s features a high-risk pregnancy outpatient clinic staffed by maternal-fetal medicine specialists from Saint Louis University who are experts at handling these challenges. In addition, St. Mary’s antepartum inpatient unit is designed to provide around-the-clock monitoring of patients who have fetal operations and/or have high-risk pregnancies to ensure the best possible outcome during delivery.
SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center is the only St. Louis hospital with an all-private neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The Dana Brown Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a 60-bed unit staffed by specially trained neonatologists who care for newborn babies no matter their condition. As a nationally recognized pediatric hospital, Cardinal Glennon also has the most up-to-date pediatric surgical suites in the country. We are equipped for the most complex open and minimally invasive procedures featuring Saint Louis University pediatric specialists and surgeons who have successfully cared for premature babies as young as 23 weeks.
Saint Louis University physician experts serve both St. Louis Fetal Care Institute hospital locations as proven resources for fetal challenges. Physicians from the Saint Louis University School of Medicine (Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health and Pediatrics) staff the hospitals served by the St. Louis Fetal Care Institute. Saint Louis University School of Medicine also provides surgeons specializing in the care of newborns and children with the most complex surgical diseases. These physicians are highly credentialed and respected doctors who, in their roles as professors at Saint Louis University, also teach medical students and resident physicians.
