The Fetal Care Center of Cincinnati combines the strength of three hospitals into a single, integrated program that provides comprehensive care for mothers and babies facing a fetal condition or high-risk pregnancy and delivery.
We offer prenatal evaluation, fetal diagnosis and treatment services that consider – and care for – both you and your baby throughout your pregnancy and after delivery.
Since 2004, we have performed more than 3,200 high-risk pregnancy evaluations at the Fetal Care Center.
The Fetal Care Center brings together renowned fetal surgeons and maternal-fetal medicine specialists, leading technologies and integrated support services from three Cincinnati-area hospitals.
The Fetal Care Center is located within Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, ranked No. 3 in the nation in U.S. News & World Report's 2013-14 list of Best Children's Hospitals. Fetal surgeons provide a complete range of fetal treatment and fetal surgery, and neonatologists and pediatric specialists provide the highest level of care for your baby after birth.
Experienced teams of maternal-fetal medicine specialists and obstetric nurses from two Level III (the highest level) maternity hospitals provide expert care for mothers during and after pregnancy:
Good Samaritan Hospital delivered 6,531 babies last year − more than any other hospital in Ohio for the sixth year in a row. Its 30-bed inpatient unit was specifically designed for women with high-risk pregnancies who require additional close observation and care and need to spend time in the hospital. Three critical care beds are located in the labor and delivery unit to provide close monitoring and observation of both mother and baby.
University of Cincinnati Medical Center is consistently ranked as one of America’s best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Its high-risk OB unit is fully equipped to monitor and respond to any level of pregnancy care, including pregnancies requiring extended stays and around-the-clock observation. Ultrasound and fetal monitoring services, as well as three operating rooms equipped for cesarean sections and emergent care, are located on the same floor.
University of Cincinnati Medical Center and Good Samaritan Hospital are designated as Level III newborn intensive care units by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The NICU at Cincinnati Children’s is Level IV, the highest level and the only one in Greater Cincinnati. Care is provided by Cincinnati Children's neonatologists in all three NICUs.
The Fetal Care Center of Cincinnati boasts a nationally recognized team of experts with specialized training and experience in treating mothers and babies with fetal conditions. Our program was founded by fetal and pediatric surgeon Timothy Crombleholme, MD, FACS, FAAP, one of the most respected experts in the field of fetal medicine and surgery.
The leadership of the Fetal Care Center includes specialists in maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) and neonatology and fetal and pediatric surgery:
Polzin and Van Hook are leading maternal-fetal medicine specialists with more than 20 years of experience caring for mothers with high-risk pregnancies. Lim is a fetal-pediatric surgeon. Kingma is trained in the care of critically ill newborns.
They are supported by a staff of highly trained and skilled fetal surgeons, MFMs, pediatric specialists, nurses, counselors and therapists.
