Perinatal Care Research

Perinatal Care Research

At GE Research, we aim to see, move and create the future of care in Obstetrics and Neonatology.  As part of the GE Global Research Organization and in conjunction with our Maternal Infant Care division of GE Healthcare, we work to deliver the best products and solutions for moms, babies and the clinical staff who cares for them. 

Around the world, we work within an interdisciplinary model of experts to develop solutions that ultimately enhance clinical capabilities by providing the ideal tools in the perinatal care space.  We bring together the latest technologies and clinical expertise to discover, learn and then implement innovation.
