OSWEGO, N.Y. — Oswego Health’s maternity center is being recognized by two health-care organizations for providing “safe and high-quality care to new mothers and their babies,” the organization announced.

The maternity center was most recently honored by the New York State Perinatal Quality Collaborative (or NYSPQC), which in partnership with the state Department of Health aims to provide the “best and safest care for women and infants in the state.”

Oswego Health’s maternity center was presented with the Obstetrical Improvement Project 2015 Quality Improvement Award for its participation in a project that focused on identifying and treating maternal hemorrhage and hypertension, the two leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality in New York, according to an Oswego Health news release.


The maternity center surpassed the required benchmark with 100 percent of its birthing mothers taking part in this quality program. Hospitals in New York state that ensured that at least 80 percent of its birthing mothers were evaluated in labor and were also provided the proper education prior to discharge, were recognized with the award.

To achieve this honor, Oswego Health maternity center staff developed protocols to ensure that all birthing mothers were screened and educated on these important obstetrical health-care issues

Oswego Health’s maternity center was also again named to the Immunization Action Coalition Birth Dose Honor Roll. The maternity center is among the 25 hospitals in the state that achieved a 90 percent or higher coverage rate in 2015 for the birth dose of hepatitis B vaccine.

The maternity center recently unveiled a new C-section recovery room for new mothers and their babies, offering a quicker bonding experience for the new family, Oswego Health contends.
