OMC receives banner award from March of Dimes

Ozarks Medical Center is recognized by the Missouri Hospital Association and the March of Dimes for reducing the number of elective inductions and Cesarean deliveries performed before 39 completed weeks of pregnancy. The March of Dimes says this will give more babies a healthy start in life. Babies delivered before full term are at increased risk of serious health problems and death in their first year of life. OMC's rate of early elective deliveries is at 0 percent, having had no early elective deliveries or cesarean sections in more than two years. Each year, the medical center delivers approximately 700 babies. Nick Nichols, Vice President of Membership Services for the Missouri Hospital Association, recently presented a recognition banner to the organization. Pictured with Nicholas are OMC administration and members of the OMC Women's Health Services team.
