Our obstetricians and gynecologists played a key part in The Joint Commission awarding Lakeland Health with the Perinatal Care Certification. Lakeland is among only eight health systems in the United States that currently hold this designation, and is the first to receive the certification in Michigan and in the Midwest.

“This certification is terrific recognition of how our team works together to provide safe, high-quality care for mothers and babies, from pregnancy through the first days of life.”
