Lane Regional Medical Center Receives Birth Ready Plus Designation

Louisiana Perinatal Quality Collaborative (LaPQC) has designated Lane Regional Medical Center as a Birth Ready + facility. This 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 be designated as a Birth Ready + facility,” says Dawn Fuller, director of Women’s Services at Lane.  “Lane has been working with LaPQC for years to implement evidence-based best practices. We are committed to providing compassionate, family friendly, and specialized healthcare to every patient, every time.”
