Women & Infants: Arriving February 2018

The Women & Infants Center is the region’s most advanced integrated medical center dedicated to women’s and newborn’s health – from specialized preventive care to the latest comprehensive treatments to childbirth. It is only through the unique partnership of three top medical institutions -- Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University Physicians and St. Louis Children’s Hospital -- that the Center is able to provide expert care for women at every stage of life and their infants.

With one of the only Level IV Newborn Intensive Care Units (NICUs) in St. Louis, we provide the highest level of treatment available for critically-ill newborns and those requiring special monitoring. Our Level IV NICU is the only one in the region that is directly connected to labor and delivery, keeping mothers close to their babies during care.

Our Facilities

The new Women & Infants Center is located on the Washington University Medical Campus and is housed in two new adjoining towers at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, opening in February 2018. A walkway joins the two buildings connecting labor and delivery with the NICU. Many of our Center’s outpatient services, including wellness visits, will be performed in the newly renovated Center for Outpatient Health.
