High-Risk Pregnancy Services

At Fort Sanders Perinatal Center we provide a comprehensive range of high-risk pregnancy services and procedures to assess your baby’s condition, rule out or confirm potential medical complications, and help physicians manage or prevent difficulties. We strive to improve pregnancy outcomes and ensure optimal health for every woman and infant.

It’s always our goal to provide complete care for you and your baby. That’s why we prepare for all possible situations and partner with the neonatologists at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital to provide complete care for our smallest patients. Through our collaboration, we can provide emergent care and medical services for infants, including a neonatal intensive care unit, neonatologists and a comprehensive newborn nursery.

Expert emergent care is just steps away.
