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.
