Infant Mortality

Collaborating with Ohio's Hospitals and Partners to Improve Infant Health

OHA’s Institute for Health Innovation, under a directive of the OHA Board of Trustees and the Board’s Clinical Advisory Committee, developed a multi-faceted set of initiatives to impact change at the hospital level and to support efforts of member hospitals working in their local communities to improve Ohio’s critical infant mortality issue.

OHA launched the Good4Baby initiative in April 2014. The key focus areas of the initiative include safe sleep, early elective deliveries, breastfeeding, safe spacing, progesterone, access to care, disparities, tobacco cessation and neonatal abstinence syndrome.
