Hospital re-designated for Level III care

Hinsdale – Adventist Hinsdale Hospital has been re-designated with a Level III standing for obstetric and neonatal care, hospital officials announced. This designation by the Illinois Department of Health certifies that Adventist Hinsdale Hospital offers the highest degree of quality care for high-risk moms and high-risk newborns, with 11 Level III NICU beds.

There are currently three levels of nurseries in the United States – Level I, II and III.  Level III nurseries provide the widest variety of advanced care available for all newborns. Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, part of the University of Chicago Perinatal Network, was first designated as a Level III obstetric and neonatal care center in 2000.

“This re-designation assures that we will continue providing the best care to our tiniest patients and their families,” said BettySue Netzel, the hospital’s director of women and children’s services.

Re-designation typically takes place every three years. IDPH surveyors visited Adventist Hinsdale Hospital in October to inspect the facility and its equipment, review charts and question nurses and other medical team members on proper protocol.

“Our Level III status allows patients to stay in the community to receive the highest quality obstetric and neonatal care,” said Dr. Daniel Gauthier, a maternal-fetal medicine physician.

The neonatal intensive care unit is part of the hospital’s Birck Family Women’s and Children’s Center, a comprehensive program providing top-level maternity and neonatal care. The Maternal Fetal Medicine Center provides state-of-the-art care to women with high-risk pregnancies.
