Dear Future Parents,
In view of the state of epidemic declared in Poland due to #COVID-19, and in accordance with the new recommendations of Prof. Mirosław Wielgoś, national consultant for perinatology, Prof. Krzysztof Czajkowski, consultant for obstetrics and gynaecology and Prof. M. Zimmer, President of the Polish Society of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians,
we have decided to suspend family childbirths from 22 March 2020 until further notice.
The ban on visits to obstetrics wards is still in force.
Any pregnant woman who is under our care (in terms of pregnancy and childbirth) should come alone, both for appointments and for childbirth – without accompanying persons. We would also like to remind you that you can obtain advice from an anaesthesiologist or neonatologist by telephone, as part of qualification for childbirth at our hospital. In order to do so, please call our hotline – 500 900 900.
We understand that you may have some questions and doubts. Therefore, starting from today, our consultants will contact all women who signed childbirth contracts with us. We want to provide you with important information and answer your questions as soon as possible.
We focus on the health of you and your children. #SAFETY is our top priority. We are fully prepared to provide our patients with professional care during this exceptional time, following all the safety measures. Nevertheless, we ask you to behave responsibly to avoid the risk of infection and take increased precautions – wash your hands frequently, avoid large groups of people and wear protective masks and disposable gloves. By taking action together and supporting each other, we can avoid the disease and stop the outbreak.
We have a Neonatology, High-risk Pregnancy and Intensive Neonatal Care Ward equipped with the following:
- state-of-the-art incubators, including a transport incubator
- multifunctional respirators for mechanical breathing with a high-frequency ventilation option
- SIPAP Infant Flow – the system to support breathing in neonates by a non-invasive method
- Portable X-ray machine
- Mobile ultrasound scanner with colour Doppler
The Neonatology and Neonatal Intensive Care Ward and the Maternity Ward are located on the same floor of the hospital. This allows for quick intervention if necessary and in case of complications, the mother and baby are close to each other.
We are prepared for unexpected situations. The smallest child that was safely born here weighed less than 1,000 grams.
We perform screening tests and provide all necessary vaccinations.
At Medicover, we are committed to medical safety and comfort. Therefore, all tests, examinations and consultations are performed and held in the Neonatal Ward. There is no need to transport newborn babies to other places. We perform full diagnostics on site soyou and your baby are safe.
If necessary, additional consultations with other specialists are held immediately.
We meet the standard
for second referral level centres
In 2014, we received the Five-Star Maternity Care Award from the International Health Commission (IHC) in recognition of our outstanding knowledge and experience in the field of obstetric care.
With this award, Medicover Hospital has joined the elite group of five-star maternity hospitals.
High level of services
The Maternity Ward is one of 7 clinics operating within Medicover Hospital. Thanks to this, our patients have access to high-class specialists in various fields and team consultations (medical consultations) may be held to discusscomplicated cases.
The hospital regularly undergoes audits by independent institutions that monitor the standards of medical safety and quality of hospital care.
The high level of our services is confirmed by certificates and awards received by the Hospital.
In January 2011, we received the accreditation of the Minister of Health confirming that our hospital meets high medical standards set by the Healthcare Quality Monitoring Centre.
