At WMHS we are undertaking a series of initiatives to reduce hospital admissions, especially readmissions. We are pulling out all stops to encourage healthy eating, exercising, quitting smoking and the list goes on. Take quitting smoking among pregnant women, we need our OBs to take a stand and widely publish that stand. We have one of the highest rates in the state and many of the young pregnant women just don't get it as to the effects that smoking have on the unborn child. This will be quite the undertaking, but so worth it if patients embrace a healthier lifestyle.
