Perinatal Diagnostic and Treatment Center

The Perinatal Diagnostic and Treatment Center (PDTC) helps women with high-risk or complicated pregnancies. The skilled staff including two affiliated perinatologists - physicians specializing in high-risk pregnancy - work together with your obstetrician to provide monitored care for the health of both you and your unborn baby. The PDTC also works in conjunction with CHOC Children's at Mission Hospital Neonatalogists. Since 1995, we have delivered over 500 healthy newborns to high-risk mothers.
