The Right Connections:
Columbus Fetal Medicine Collaborative

In 2008, the Columbus Fetal Medicine Collaborative – a joint effort among OhioHealth, The Ohio State University Medical Center, Mt. Carmel Health Systems and Nationwide Children’s Hospital – was developed to provide high-risk expectant mothers and their babies the highest quality care in a family-centered environment.
Individually, these hospital systems are among the finest in the country, demonstrating excellence in patient care, research and technology. Together, they offer the most advanced diagnosis and treatment available to both the mother and baby before, during and after the infant’s birth for a safe and healthy outcome.
