Sutter Memorial Hospital Piloting Initiative
Sacramento Press

Sacramento’s “baby hospital” – Sutter Memorial Hospital in East Sacramento – is one of three birthing centers in Northern California that are piloting a national March of Dimes initiative calling for the elimination of elective premature births. The toolkit, called the Elimination of Non-medically Indicated (Elective) Deliveries Before 39 Weeks Gestational Age, provides patients educational materials focused on the adverse consequences of early elective delivery as well as tools for health-care providers and hospital staff to develop efficient and successful quality improvement programs.
