Designated as the Regional Perinatal Center for Western New York, Oishei Children's Hospital offers a comprehensive maternal and newborn service – from a basic, uncomplicated delivery to the most sophisticated care for mothers and babies with the most complex, critical problems. The New York State Department of Health requires RPNCs to provide the following services:

  • Comprehensive subspecialty medical and surgical care
  • Maternal and neonatal transport program
  • Coordination of regional data collection and analysis among affiliate hospitals
  • Facilitation of Regional Perinatal Program
  • Assistance to affiliated hospitals on quality improvement activities
  • Regional education programs to ensure optimal perinatal care and stabilization

Oishei Children's Hospital is the only hospital in Western New York to offer these specialized services for babies. Seventeen hospitals from the region’s eight counties and three institutions in Erie and Warren, Pennsylvania transfer their most critically ill infants and high risk expectant mothers to Oishei Children's Hospital for the highest level of medical care available.
