NRHA in The News – Maternal, Infant Health in Rural Counties Without OBs
New research by NRHA members at the University of Minnesota Rural Health Research Center offers a comparison of evidence-based supports for maternal and infant health in 133 rural U.S. counties with and without hospital-based OB care. Additionally, Titus Regional Medical Center, an NRHA member in rural Texas, has been recognized as one of the best hospitals in the country for maternity care, while women in Deep East Texas drive more than an hour to give birth after the last obstetrics unit in the area closed in 2019. Act by 11:59 p.m. CST today to save hundreds on your chance to advocate in person for the maternity care needs of your community Feb. 7-9 at NRHA’s 34th Rural Health Policy Institute.
