With a rich history in women’s health, Mount Sinai Hospital is home to the Frances Bloomberg Centre for Women’s and Infants’ Health, the largest program in Canada of its kind, providing leading-edge care to women of all ages, in all stages of life.
Throughout the month of June, we will share stories that shed a light on the incredible work being done in our Women’s and Infants’ Health program. This includes treating some of the most complex pregnancies in our Special Pregnancy Program and conducting surgeries in-utero through the Ontario Fetal Centre, to delivering exceptional care in our Mother Baby Program, and seeing the most fragile of babies in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It’s no wonder Sinai Health is recognized around the world as the leading centre for maternal, fetal and neonatal medicine.
With a special focus on Women’s and Infants’ Health, the very inspiring Spring/Summer 2019 Sinai Health Foundation magazine can be picked up throughout the hospital or viewed online.
We Are Leaders
- The first of its kind Ontario Fetal Centre, based at Mount Sinai and in partnership with SickKids, offers a full range of highly specialized fetal surgeries and procedures.
- Family Integrated Care (FICare) is a model developed by clinicians at Mount Sinai Hospital where parents are encouraged to be active members of the team that take care of their infant while in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Research has shown that infants cared for under the FICare model grow faster and have less stress, spend fewer days in the NICU, and are less likely to be readmitted to hospital after discharge.
- The Mature Women’s Health Program serves more than 1,200 patients annually with issues related to severe menopause, urogynaecology and sexual function, and other health concerns specific to mature women.
- Mount Sinai is home to the Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank, the only milk bank in Ontario that collects, processes and dispenses donated breast milk to NICU babies across the province.
