In an effort to enhance the lives and care for families on the Suncoast and beyond, Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Sarasota is among select hospitals participating in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Perinatal Improvement Collaborative. The collaborative includes many of the nation’s leading hospitals caring for diverse populations in all 50 states, using real-time data, analytics and performance improvement methodologies to improve care for mothers and babies across the country. SMH is the leading provider of maternity services in the Suncoast region, delivering more than 4,000 babies at SMH-Sarasota and SMH-Venice in 2021. The HHS Perinatal Improvement Collaborative will test interventions and protocols to reduce preventable deaths and complications among mothers and their babies. The program aims to quickly generate solutions for safer obstetric and neonatal care that can be implemented nationwide. The effort will be guided by an external advisory panel comprising more than 20 expert clinicians and thought leaders, and patient partners from MoMMA’s Voices, a coalition of advocacy organizations focused on leading causes of maternal mortality and morbidity.
