Lakewood Ranch Medical Center (LWRMC) is pleased to announce its affiliation with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital to expand neonatal health services for Women’s Center mothers and their newborns.
The partnership provides 24/7 neonatal coverage by Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital’s neonatology specialists for babies born at LWRMC. This specialized coverage provides for advanced support services such as respiratory or cardiac care, if needed, after a baby is delivered.
“Johns Hopkins All Children’s is a nationally recognized leader in neonatal care,” says Andy Guz, Lakewood Ranch Medical Center CEO. “Our partnership should reassure parents of newborns who may require additional medical support that specialized care is readily available."
“We are thrilled Johns Hopkins All Children’s is moving into our Lakewood Ranch community,” says Audrey Davis, MD, Interim Medical Director of Neonatal Services at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center. “We will continue to offer the same compassionate, personalized care in our labor and delivery services; however, should your child need advanced support, Johns Hopkins All Children’s specialists will be available to offer their expertise.”
The Women’s Center at LWRMC features 14 labor, delivery, recovery, and post-partum (LDRP) suites and a Level 1 Nursery. It combines top technological offerings in a beautifully appointed, spa-like environment.
