Atrium Medical Center Foundation provided $105,057 toward Atrium's maternal health clinic, which provides comprehensive health care regardless of our patients' financial status through health prevention, routine examinations, detection, screening, and the treatment of illness.

Centering provides guidance to help new moms and providers ensure that everything from nutrition, common discomforts, stress management, labor and delivery, breastfeeding, and infant care are covered. Numerous published studies have found centering moms have healthier babies and that centering nearly eliminates racial disparities in preterm birth.
