For Medical Professionals

Perinatal Center of Iowa (PCI) partners with referring physicians to help optimize the outcomes of pregnant women in central Iowa. Apart from the PCI office in Des Moines, PCI physicians travel across Iowa to help bring expert care closer to patients. If you are interested in partnering with PCI for the benefit of your patients, please contact us.

The Perinatal Center of Iowa team consists of:

  • Maternal-fetal medicine board-certified and board-eligible physicians
  • Central Iowa’s only certified prenatal genetics counselor
  • Advanced practice clinicians
  • Registered ultrasonographers 

Services that PCI offers include:

  • High-risk case management, including delivery
  • Pre-conceptual evaluation
  • Consultative service regarding antepartum and intrapartum management
  • Ultrasound
  • Prenatal testing
  • Genetic counseling
  • Advanced treatments

Referral process

To refer a patient to PCI for any service, please call (515) 643-6888 or toll-free (877) 415-7447. To further facilitate this process, we have put together a new Referral for Services form. Our goal with this form is two-fold – we not only want to make sure that we aren’t duplicating services that you are comfortable and capable of providing, but we also want to make sure we don’t miss a service you are requesting. As such, you will notice that this form has sections for both ultrasound examinations and consultative services. Please contact our office with any questions.

Rural outreach partnerships

PCI is continually seeking opportunities to improve the health of women throughout the state of Iowa. If you are interested in partnering with PCI for the care of your patients in your community, please call (515) 643-6888 or toll-free (877) 415-7447.
