Perinatal Wing Catering to Fetuses with Know Birth Defects Opens in Philadelphia

May 15, 2008 -The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia will open a medical unit for mothers carrying a fetus with a known birth defect on Tuesday, May 20, 2008.

The Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit will offer comprehensive medical care, from prenatal diagnosis through delivery to mother-infant care. Patients will be admitted starting in early June.

The 8-bed labor and delivery unit will allow Children’s Hospital’s experts in fetal and cardiac medicine and surgery to provide comprehensive, seamless care from diagnosis, delivery, necessary interventions through postnatal follow-up. The Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit will feature a welcome center, concierge service, private rooms and round-the-clock care provided by obstetricians, nurse-midwives and highly experienced nurses, said the hospital.

The Special Delivery Unit is named for the Garbose Family in recognition of a major gift from William and Lynne Garbose to support Children’s Hospital’s Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment.

As one of only a few centers of its kind in the world, the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia offers a wide range of fetal surgery services that support patients from the prenatal evaluation stage through infant follow-up care.
