The March of Dimes is a non-profit organization that strives to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. They work to help pregnant women carry their babies to full term and to research the problems that threaten the health of babies. “The March of Dimes is thrilled to present Delaware County Memorial Hospital with this plaque in recognition of the doctors and nurses who help give every baby a healthy start at life,” says Betsy Hanway, senior community director for the March of Dimes. “The March of Dimes is a champion for babies and their families, and we are honored to be partnered with Delaware County Memorial Hospital in this mission.” 

“On behalf of the entire Maternal/Child Health Unit staff, we are thrilled once again to receive this recognition award from the March of Dimes,” says Rose Amato, nursing director of the Maternal/Child Health Unit at Delaware County Memorial Hospital. “We hope that our continued efforts in saving babies from conditions such as premature birth will help not only the March of Dimes, but families who need our compassion and care.”
