With the generous support of donors like you, UnityPoint Health – Meriter continues to enhance and expand care for women and infants in our community. More families choose Meriter for their birth experience than any other hospital in south central Wisconsin. Combining the best in medical care, technology and clinical research, we are equipped to care for a variety of complications that an expectant mother or newborn may encounter.
The full range of patient care begins in the Center for Perinatal Care, where a multidisciplinary-team approach provides for a full range of complex medical conditions that affect the mother and fetus. The Birthing Center is an advanced tertiary care center for maternal and newborn patients, and the Newborn Intensive Care Unit is equipped to care for high-risk and critically ill infants. We work closely with our colleagues in obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, and neonatology from UW Health, bringing together the best in perinatal care, technology and clinical research with all the benefits of care in a community hospital.
