more than 25 YEARS
CARING for the REGION’S
most fragile deliveries For more than a quarter of a century, Capital Health has been the greater Mercer County area’s Regional Perinatal Center, caring for newborns who need extra special medical care that can only be provided by a regional center with a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). We also help women experiencing HIGH RISK PREGNANCIES, so they have all the support they need in place throughout their pregnancy, during delivery, and after. That means a dedicated MATERNAL FETAL MEDICINE program and 24/7 IN-HOUSE OBSTETRICAL, NEONATAL, ANESTHESIOLOGY and MIDWIFERY COVERAGE. When it comes to EXPERIENCE, our Level III NICU cared for more than 416 babies in the last year alone and more than 70 percent of the Magnet recognized NICU nurses at Capital Health have spent more than 10 years as part of the Capital Health program.
