FT. WORTH – Medical City Alliance, which delivers over 700 babies each year, and the March of Dimes® are joining together to help improve the health of moms and babies in our community and across the United States. As a gold level sponsor for the March of Dimes’ upcoming March for Babies® walk, Medical City Alliance is hoping to donate $2500 to the March of Dimes by encouraging employees to help support the cause by fundraising for the walk.
“All babies deserve a healthy start at life, and Medical City Alliance is proud to join with the March of Dimes to help advance research and clinical practices that promote healthier moms and healthier babies in our community,” said Summer Hughes, Director of Women’s Services for Medical City Alliance.
This year, the March for Babies will be held on April 22 at Panther Island Pavilion in Ft. Worth. In addition to participating in the walk, Medical City Alliance will be on site to provide information and educational materials. Medical City Alliance is also sponsoring a diaper changing station, equipping a privacy tent with all the supplies needed for participating moms to change a diaper in private. More than 30 Medical City Alliance employees are expected to participate in this year’s walk.
As an affiliate of HCA, Medical City Alliance is part of a health system that is recognized as a leader in perinatal safety. HCA delivers more babies than anyone else – 219,000 in 2016 alone – and uses information from those deliveries to improve care at all HCA affiliates, like Medical City Alliance. HCA and the March of Dimes have worked together to dramatically reduced elective preterm deliveries before 39 weeks.
March for Babies walks are held across the United States to raise funds for lifesaving research and programs to help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. To start or join a team, visit https://www.marchforbabies.org/.
