Administrative Perinatal Center

A Perinatal Center must be capable of providing the highest level of care for high risk women and neonates and must have an administrative staff responsible for implementing the Department of Public Health’s Regionalized Perinatal Program.

The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) clinical and administrative perinatal centers are located within the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System. This brings together academia, clinical research, and advanced clinical services in one location. All of the major health care professions including medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, allied health, and public health are located in one place. UI Health and ambulatory clinics are equipped with the latest technology and are staffed with highly trained personnel. As a result of this rich mix of expertise and advanced technology, the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System is able to provide sophisticated sub-specialty care 24/7 and is an ideal site for the referral of high risk pregnancies and high risk neonates.

UIC has been an active participant in the development, implementation, and ongoing administration of the Regionalized Perinatal Program in Illinois since the late 1970s. From the inception of perinatal regionalization, UIC has had a continuous record of active involvement in improving outcomes for pregnancies and neonates by providing progressive care and improving care within its network of hospitals through the provision of exemplary professional education, program implementation, and quality monitoring.
