Rush-Copley Re-Designated to Provide Care for High-Risk Moms and Infants

(Aurora, Ill.) – Rush-Copley’s Family Birth Center has been re-designated a Level III Perinatal Facility by the Illinois Department of Public Health.  

Rush-Copley offers the only Level III perinatal program—the highest level of care available for high-risk pregnancies and medically fragile infants—in Kane County and the greater Fox Valley area.  The program is part of Rush-Copley’s  comprehensive women’s health services which also include obstetrics (ranked 4th in volume in Illinois), reproductive health, maternal fetal medicine, gynecology and urogynecology services.

This recertification means patients with high-risk pregnancies or medically fragile babies can rely on receiving the highest level of care at Rush-Copley.

“To receive this designation validates the medical center’s ongoing commitment to incorporating quality initiatives into all aspects of the care we provide,” said Barry C. Finn, president and CEO of Rush-Copley. “Being the first and only Level III NICU in Kane County helps provide peace of mind to the thousands of parents who choose Rush-Copley for their care.” 

Rush-Copley was the first in the nation to receive the Joint Commission’s disease-specific certifications for Normal Delivery and Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Preterm Infants.  Rush-Copley is continuing to enhance its services by pursuing a Baby Friendly Hospital designation.
