High-Risk OB Services
We offer a Maternal Fetal Medicine Center with Joint Commission Perinatal Care Certification for care and monitoring of high-risk pregnancies. In addition, DRMC is the only local provider of OB care for deliveries or complications that take place prior to the 32-week mark of pregnancy. Our highly trained nurses and staff provide expectant moms with compassion and extraordinary care during these critical life moments.
Intensive Care for Newborns
As a Level III facility, our neonatal intensive care unit at Desert Regional is the most advanced in the Coachella Valley. We care for some of the smallest premature and critically ill infants to help them get healthy and grow.
Coordinated Cancer Care
The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Desert Regional was the first in the Valley to offer a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program recognized by the Commission on Cancer. Multiple doctors consult on each case to develop customized care in a unified setting. Desert Care Network provides breast imaging in Palm Springs, La Quinta and Joshua Tree to make sure residents in our community can easily receive regular screenings to protect against the most common cancer among women.
Desert Regional is home to the only Level II Trauma Center from the Banning pass to the Arizona border. More than 600 helicopter flights each year land on our helipad, helping specially trained nurses and doctors serve the widest designated trauma region in Riverside County. JFK Memorial Hospital was recently designated a Level IV Trauma Center, bringing a higher level of service to residents of the Eastern Coachella Valley. Our clinical teams at all three hospitals work in coordination to ensure we cover the emergency needs of our residents.
Emergency Room Services
In addition to stroke care, our hospitals provide the community with speedy access for patients who experience heart attacks, fractures or other illnesses that require immediate treatment. For patients driving themselves, our website features an online check-in service to let nurses know you’re on the way.
