Springfield, Pa. – The Maternal/Child Health Units at Delaware County Memorial Hospital and Crozer-Chester Medical Center were recently presented with plaques from the March of Dimes in recognition of the physicians and staff who fight to save babies’ lives every day. The recognition awards were part of the organization’s annual “Day of Gratitude” in honor of Prematurity Awareness Month, which is observed annually in November. Anthony Stover, community director for the March of Dimes’ Pennsylvania Chapter, Southeast Division, presented the award to nurses, physicians and nursing administration staff at the hospital.

“For 75 years, the March of Dimes’ mission has been to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality,” Stover says. “We are grateful to Crozer-Keystone Health System for partnering with us in this mission. The NICU nurses and physicians play a huge role in the lives of these tiny miracles.”

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

“In the short time I have been with Crozer-Keystone, I have seen firsthand the commitment that our staff and the March of Dimes have to the well-being of premature infants and their families,” adds Ken Molczan, nurse director of the Intensive Care Nursery at Crozer. “I look forward to continuing to build on this mutually beneficial relationship.”
