Our vision is to be the safest Hospital to deliver your baby. Many of our patients are considered high-risk, whether due to advanced maternal age, health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, or twin/triplet pregnancies. Our hospital is prepared for the highest risk situations for both maternal and newborn conditions with 24/7 in-hospital presence of maternal fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, OB Hospitalists, dedicated anesthesiologists and Magnet-designated nursing staff. Our Newport Beach hospital has a level III NICU staffed at all times by two board-certified Children’s Hospital of Orange County neonatologists and supported by respiratory therapists, pharmacists, occupational/physical therapists and NICU nurses. Our Irvine maternity hospital is equipped with a special care nursery which is prepared for high-risk situations. Learn more about high-risk pregnancies.
