Almost one-third of hospitals in rural Maine have closed their obstetric units in the past 15 years, meaning that expectant mothers face longer drives for maternity care and increased health risks due to lack of access to obstetricians and delivery room nurses.
Now a team of researchers from Northeastern’s Roux Institute in Portland, Maine, is reporting on a way to grow flowers in the state’s maternity desert by keeping the obstetric programs that remain open and thriving.
The researchers interviewed scores of nurses, doctors and administrators at 15 of 16 rural hospitals to come up with a comprehensive plan to address obstetrical workforce needs.
