Lane Receives Birth Ready Plus Re-Designation

Louisiana Perinatal Quality Collaborative (LaPQC) has re-designated Lane Regional Medical Center as a Birth Ready + facility. This re-designation celebrates the hospital’s consistent healthcare improvement for perinatal health outcomes, the result of implementing clinical practices to promote safe, equitable, and dignified birth for all.

Hospitals receiving the Birth Ready + designation undergo a rigorous application and review process by LaPQC. Five areas of requirement include participation in collaborative learning, health disparity and patient partnership, policies and procedures, structures and education, and outcome and process measures.

“We are proud to once again receive designation as a Birth Ready + facility,” says Dawn Fuller, Director of Women’s Services at Lane.  “Lane’s involvement and partnership with the LaPQC has increased our awareness of the new initiatives needed to continue providing the highest possible level of care for our pregnant and postpartum patients. Our facility continues to implement changes and improvements that allow us to serve our patients with specialized maternal care and evidence-based best practices. We also remain focused on our quality metrics to provide compassionate and family-friendly healthcare to every patient, every time.”
