SILAS Program

Silas inspired his parents and their community to ensure other families facing a life-limiting fetal condition could find solace and comfort at The Helmerich Women’s Health Center in Tulsa.

Perinatal (which means around the time of birth) palliative care provides compassionate medical support to improve comfort and quality of life for terminally ill newborns. This time allows the family to embrace every moment of life together.

The Helmerich Women’s Health Center at Hillcrest is honored to offer Oklahoma’s only hospital-based perinatal palliative care program.

In additional to personalized inpatient care, the program offers:

  • Private childbirth classes.
  • Dedicated room.
  • Assistance choosing a photographer.
  • Assistance selecting support services after discharge.
  • A SILAS Liaison to provide support before, during and after delivery.

The SILAS Program is provided at no additional cost.
