Baptist Health System is working to expand access to care to rural Texas moms, infants
San Antonio Business Journal, June 4, 2008
Baptist Health System has created two programs that will help rural hospitals and physicians in South Texas streamline the transfer of expectant mothers and their babies to San Antonio hospitals for specialized care. Through Maternal Transport, high-risk pregnant women will be transported to Baptist Health System hospitals to take advantage of specialized care from neonatologists with experience with premature babies and babies born with complex medical issues. Through the second program, PediCom, hospitals, urgent care centers, and physicians throughout South Texas will be provided with access to advanced pediatric care.
