The New Jersey Hospital Association has been awarded a $1 million grant from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention for its NJ Perinatal Quality Collaborative, which works to improve perinatal care across hospitals in the state.

The PQC is one of 13 state organizations to receive the grant. The money will go toward reducing preterm births, severe pregnancy complications, and racial and ethnic disparities, and other efforts to improve the health of mothers and newborn babies.

The NJ PQC has already worked to cut the early elective delivery rate in the state nearly in half, and birthing hospitals around the state reduced adverse obstetric events by 34 percent, saving the state more than $34 million from 2012 to 2016 as part of the Partnership for Patients initiative.

“We want every baby to get the best start possible in New Jersey,” Aline Holmes, senior vice president of clinical affairs at NJHA, said in a written statement. “This funding will help us provide evidence-based care for all mothers, babies and families.”
