Regional Perinatal Center
Both the North Shore University Hospital and LIJ Medical Center are New York State Department of Health-designated Regional Perinatal Centers (RPC). This designation acknowledges our ability to provide the highest level of obstetric and neonatal care in the region. The Regional Perinatal Center at LIJ is the only such designated center for the entire borough of Queens.
Our obstetrical and neonatal staffs are highly qualified and capable of providing care to women experiencing a complicated pregnancy, as well as to infants requiring specialized care in a neonatal intensive care unit.
As regional perinatal centers, we provide perinatal consultation and transport service from hospitals in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens.
