At the Rush Fetal and Neonatal Medicine Center, we believe that when confronting a fetal anomaly, it's best to face it with an experienced group of compassionate health care specialists. That's why the Rush Fetal and Neonatal Medicine Center at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, was created. This comprehensive program is designed to give expectant parents and their physicians the information they need to provide optimal care. See the Rush Fetal and Neonatal Medicine brochure.
How the Process Works
- Using the latest technologies, we begin with a diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, we invite the expectant parents and their referring physicians to a free multidisciplinary consultation.
- At the meeting, physicians, nurses with advanced training, social workers and other staff meet with expectant parents — along with their loved ones — to review cases, pool knowledge, share opinions and answer questions. By providing expertise, these specialists lend support and comfort to help ease the anxiety brought on by uncertain outcomes.
- Based on the meeting, the team creates a plan of action that will help guide the expectant parents for the remainder of the pregnancy and after the birth. This can include everything from additional diagnostic tests to surgical recommendations to a birthing plan.

The program is backed by the many resources of one of the best academic medical centers in the country. Consistently ranked among the nation's top hospitals by U.S.News & World Report, Rush has earned Magnet status three times from the American Nurses Credentialing Center — the highest honor in nursing. It has also been named among the top five academic centers in the country by the University HealthSystem Consortium in its annual quality and accountability performance ranking. These honors reflect Rush's ongoing commitment to providing unparalleled care by working collaboratively to pool knowledge and exchange opinions based on expertise and experience.
