March of Dimes
American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists District XII and March of Dimes Banner Recognition
A number of Florida hospitals will be honored by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) District XII (Florida) and the March of Dimes for reducing the number of early elective inductions and cesarean deliveries with a special recognition banner. The hospitals selected recently met the criteria to qualify for this distinction, which includes achieving a rate for elective deliveries before 39 completed weeks of pregnancy of 5 percent, or lower and have policies in place to discourage such deliveries in the future.
