What's New Across the State?!
Group HomeGroup Home Blog Home Group Blogs
Hello Iowa AWHONN Members! I hope everyone across the state is enjoying the winter months. I am super excited about the new AWHONN website! A HUGE thank you to AWHONN National for this new site! I hope this is a way we can engage, discuss and share. I am excited to share that Spencer Hospital is currently in the middle of building a new OB unit! We will have the same number of LDRPs we are just moving to have immediate access into an OR. We were planning on adding an OR suite to the current OB however in doing the planning and adding the dollars up it was actually decided to move the OB unit to be near the OR!! More bit of news from NW Iowa is that we will soon begin offering nitrous oxide as a pain management option for our moms!

Levels of Care

Posted By Jeannette L. Hasley, Thursday, January 28, 2016
If you've not heard Maternal and Neonatal Levels of care are being updated/revised. These reflect ACOG and AAP levels of care. (I have attached their documents for your reference) The Iowa Perinatal Advisory Committee has been meeting to update the verbiage to the levels of care. These meetings are open to the public. I will post here when the next meeting is scheduled. It was nice to see that some of you attended in person and others joined via phone conference. More to come as those are finalized and published.
