Get Care for the Most Vulnerable: High Risk Pregnant Mothers and Neonatal Intensive Care Infants

The High Risk Perinatal Program (HRPP) is a comprehensive, statewide system of services dedicated to reducing maternal and infant mortality. The 3 components of the program include:

1) Maternal and Neonatal Transport Services that provide medical consultation and case management related to treatment/stabilization and, if needed, maternal and/or neonatal transport to available higher level(s) of care.

2) Hospital and Inpatient Physician Services that provide comprehensive, developmentally and risk appropriate care to critically ill infants within a hospital setting that is caring and supportive to the infant and their extended family.

3) Community Nursing Services that  facilitates the transition of the child and family from the Newborn Intensive Care Unit to their home and community.

The program provides a safety net for Arizona families, to ensure the most appropriate level of care surrounding birth as well as early identification and support for the child’s developmental needs.

Benefits of HRPP

  • Assure that high risk pregnant women and critically ill newborns receive timely access to appropriate medical care without regard to geographic location or ability to pay
  • Provide interventions which result in the reduction of infant and maternal deaths and improved medical and developmental outcomes
  • Provide support to families who have been impacted by the birth of a critically ill infant
  • Assist families in the development of a secure and nurturing environment which will increase their child’s ability to learn and grow
  • Connect families with early intervention services which can increase the child’s chances for optimal development and learning
