Women & Infants introduces integrated program for high-risk pregnancy
Date:7/25/2011

Every pregnancy deserves special treatment. But when a woman with a normal pregnancy has a complication or a woman with a medical issue becomes pregnant, she needs highly specialized care.

With this in mind, Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island has created New England's only fully integrated center for the care of women with high-risk pregnancies and their developing fetuses.

Powrie, MD, co-director of the Integrated Program for High-Risk Pregnancy, interim chair of the Department of Medicine, and senior vice president of Quality and Clinical Effectiveness at Women & Infants Hospital.
