JHH recertified as top-level perinatal referral center

The Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems, an independent state agency responsible for overseeing and coordinating all emergency medical services throughout the state, has re-designated The Johns Hopkins Hospital as a Level IIIC Perinatal Referral Center for Maryland. This is the 11th time JHH has earned the certification.

MIEMSS noted that JHH met or exceeded the requirements for providing excellent patient-centered care. Recertification will be effective until 2017.

In fiscal year 2010, JHH received 180 neonatal transports, 528 in-hospital NICU admissions and 196 maternal transports. Some 2,000 babies were born in the hospital during that time period.
