Staff members who work with the CenteringPregnancy Prenatal Care Program at CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson gathered for a photo upon being named an Outstanding Rural Health Program by the University of North Dakota.

The CenteringPregnancy Prenatal Care Program at CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson, Dickinson, ND, was named the Outstanding Rural Health Program by the University of North Dakota Center for Rural Health. The award honors a program that delivers services in innovative ways to improve care access and quality for rural North Dakotans.

The CenteringPregnancy Program offers the same care as a traditional prenatal appointment, but also gives patients more education, opportunities to connect with other women in the same gestational stage, and more time with prenatal providers.

The program has shown measurable decreases in pre-term labor, unnecessary visits to the emergency room, and gestational diabetes. In addition, participating mothers are less likely to experience postpartum depression and more likely to breastfeed their babies, reducing infant illness and reducing costs for themselves and the rural healthcare system.
