Penn Ob/Gyn Care

Perinatal Evaluation and Treatment Unit (PETU) at Pennsylvania Hospital

Located adjacent to the hospital's Labor and Delivery Unit, the Perinatal Evaluation and Treatment Unit (PETU) offers one convenient, centralized location for evaluation of pregnancy-related concerns of patients. The PETU provides outpatient care as well as antenatal testing procedures that are performed on both an outpatient and inpatient basis.

The PETU also provides high-quality, efficient maternal/fetal evaluation and triage for all women in labor. It is the first PETU in the region staffed by perinatalogists or maternal fetal medicine specialists (high-risk pregnancy specialists) to assist in the evaluation of high-risk situations that develop during labor and delivery. Procedures such as amniocentesis and fetal surgery are also performed in the PETU.
