Jackson Fetal Therapy Institute
Tropical Storm Erika Update
Jackson Health System is open for business and operating as usual.
The Jackson Fetal Therapy Institute at Jackson Memorial Hospital offers patients the latest and most advanced resources in the field of prenatal diagnosis and treatment of complex fetal conditions. In almost every case where fetal care is needed, the fetus’s life is at risk due to the diagnosed condition. Early prenatal diagnosis can improve the survival rates for babies suffering fatal disorders and can prevent or reduce the likelihood of unfavorable outcomes, enhancing a baby’s overall quality of life. Prenatal diagnosis can also significantly reduce the surgical risks to mothers and babies and the total costs of providing care to babies born with serious disorders and birth defects.
Patients of the Jackson Fetal Therapy Institute are treated at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Referred patients have their prenatal ultrasound evaluation, consultation and surgical procedure at Jackson Memorial Hospital as well.
