In an effort to increase the safety of every baby born at CCMH, we have invested in an advanced security system, just installed, that protects against infant abduction and ensures correct mother/baby matching.
The Hugs & Kisses Infant Protection system from Stanley Healthcare consists of water resistant tags and straps that are applied immediately after the time of delivery.
This week, CCMH finalized a partnership with OU Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) to provide neonatal-perinatal services in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at CCMH.
Neonatal services will provide emergent treatment and stabilization of infants who are at risk at birth and can be managed with the expertise of a neonatologist and/or neonatal nurse practitioner in conjunction with a local pediatrician. Infants that are deemed too unstable for care at CCMH will be treated at the Children's Hospital, OU Medical Center.
While we pride ourselves at CCMH for always striving to provide our community with the most technological advancements available, we also understand that technology isn't the only important aspect of care.
Because of this, we are taking a new approach to women's care, especially on our Labor and Delivery unit.
Excellence is no accident. It is the result of attention to even the smallest detail. It is 60 years of continual attention to details that has made Comanche County Memorial Hospital the healthcare leader in Southwest Oklahoma. One such detail that we have recently added to help new parents celebrate the joyous occasion of the birth of their child is "Baby Cakes."
CCMH is proud to announce that Radiology Services has received accreditation from the American College of Radiology (ACR) for MRI, making CCMH the FIRST and ONLY imaging facility in Lawton to be ACR accredited for whole body imaging.
