Connecticut Children's, Hartford HealthCare partner to open fetal care center

Hartford (Conn.) HealthCare and Hartford-based Connecticut Children's are partnering to offer what will be the only fetal care center in New England with a dedicated delivery unit.

The center, one of only 15 in the country, will serve high-risk babies and their families and be located at Connecticut Children's main campus in the city before relocating into a new expanded tower facility set to be open in 2025, the hospital system said in an April 3 news release.

"Connecticut Children's is committed to advancing pediatric healthcare through innovative centers and programs," Bob Duncan, COO of Connecticut Children's, said in a statement. "This center is an invaluable resource to our state and region and will ensure expecting moms have access to the kind of compassionate and personalized care they deserve, especially when trying to navigate these complex fetal diagnoses."

Hartford HealthCare operates seven acute care hospitals, while Connecticut Children's has four such locations.
