IVCH’s OB unit gets state recognition for pushing against early deliveries

Posted by wlpo on January 14, 2015

One of the few hospitals that still delivers babies in the Illinois Valley has received state recognition.

The Illinois Perinatal Quality Collaborative is applauding Illinois Valley Community Hospitals OB unit of having an early elective delivery rate of less than 5%. Many mothers are induced or have C-sections before they are due without a medically necessary reason.

Health advocates say these options are more costly and risky.
