Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre
10 Year Anniversary
Clinic Highlight: Maternal Fetal Medicine
The Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) Clinic at Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre (JPOCSC) is part of the only specialized clinic in Fraser Health that provides in-depth and ongoing care for women with complex and high-risk pregnancies.
The Clinical Team includes MFM Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses. This Clinic initially opened with just one Physician. With the increased growth of our population in Surrey and the surrounding communities, the team has grown from one Perinatologist to seven.
Complex pregnancies the MFM team will see fall into a few broad categories. These include issues with the mother such as high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, or cardiac disease. They also include issues with the fetus such as fetal growth problems, complex twins, fetal structural or genetic abnormalities. Lastly, there can be issues with the pregnancy such as preterm birth or placental abnormalities.
The Maternity Clinics at JPOCSC see over 20,000 patient visits every year. The Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic is one of 56 specialty clinics at the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre.
