Stockton prenatal clinic opens new location


A new Stockton clinic location for patients with high-risk pregnancies has opened this week. 

The space houses UC Davis Health Prenatal Diagnosis of Northern California as well as the UC Davis Fetal Cardiology Clinic. Both clinics are linked to the UC Davis Fetal Care and Treatment Center, the first comprehensive multidisciplinary fetal diagnosis and therapy center in inland Northern California.

The community-based clinic is located at 5757 Pacific Ave., Suite 132-A, in the Stonecreek Village Shopping Center in Stockton. It provides comprehensive counseling, genetic screening and diagnostic testing for fetal anomalies. The newly expanded footprint triples patient capacity compared to the former clinic location and includes six dedicated state-of-the-art ultrasound machines. The space also enables the fetal echocardiography team to increase patient access from two days per month to weekly, on Mondays. 

“We look forward to providing excellent care and service in the San Joaquin Valley in this newly expanded, state-of-the-art space,” said Herman Hedriana, director of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at UC Davis Health. “With our new clinic, we will be able to help more patients from south Sacramento to lower central California, as far east as the Nevada border and west to Sonoma.”

In early 2024, the space will also include a complex family planning care clinic and access to the UC Davis Early Pregnancy and Miscarriage Center.

“This prenatal clinic expansion is three years in the making. It involved tremendous, dedicated work and vision from a multidisciplinary team,” said Ann Tompkins, director of Ambulatory Operations, Women’s and Children’s Services at UC Davis Health. “I feel incredibly privileged to applaud the clinical team that is expanding access and exceptional care to our patient community in Stockton.”
