Neonatal Care at our Maternity Centers

Blank Children's Hospital has partnered with the Maternity Centers at Iowa Methodist Hospital, Iowa Lutheran Hospital and Methodist West Hospital to provide 24/7 on-site neonatal support. We know providing expert neonatal care is important to you, and all three locations provide these resources. Nothing is more important to you than the health and safety of your baby, and we are committed to ensuring the best possible care to our patients, especially our tiniest ones.

Iowa Methodist Medical Center

Should your baby require more advanced care, Blank Children's Hospital is right next door to the Maternity Center. With a walkway directly to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Blank Children's, and physicians and staff always on call, your baby will receive any extra assistance if the need should arise. Blank Children's neonatal specialists will attend every high-risk delivery.

Iowa Lutheran Hospital

Lutheran maintains a strong partnership with Blank Children's Hospital to provide neonatal care. A neonatal nurse from Blank Children's is available and on site to attend deliveries and provide support. Our Level 2 (special care) Nursery can care for babies born preterm or who are full-term but require close monitoring. Should your baby be transported to Blank Children's Hospital, you may also be transported at no cost to the Maternity Center at Iowa Methodist to be closer to your baby.

Methodist West Hospital

An on-site Blank Children's Hospital neonatal nurse practitioner is staffed 24/7 at Methodist West and will attend all deliveries. Our nurse practitioners provide support for all deliveries as needed. Methodist West also offers a Level 2 (special care) Nursery. 

We know how important your delivery experience is to you, and it is important to us too. The Maternity Centers at Iowa Methodist, Iowa Lutheran and Methodist West all provide neonatal care to ensure the safety of your baby.
