High-Risk Patients

High-Risk Maternal and Newborn Services

We provide a full-spectrum of perinatal services for mothers at high risk for complications during pregnancy. We also have Maternal Fetal Specialists on-call round the clock.

Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) specializes in managing critically ill newborns after high-risk deliveries. Our team of Neonatologists, Neonatal Nurse Practitioners and Pediatricians works together to provide world-class health care.

Our NICU has the capability to care for most critically ill infants. PVH is the only hospital between the Denver area and Billings, Montana to hold a high-level designation of this nature. We are fortunate to have one of the state's top nurseries right here in northern Colorado so we can keep families together, close to home.

We offer many services for patients who have a high risk for complications during pregnancy and after birth.
