North Shore Birth Center Update

MFOM would like to applaud the outstanding community organizing efforts to save the North Shore Birth Center.

The vote to cease deliveries at the birth center has been postponed.

— OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM BEVERLY HOSPITAL (November 18, 2008): 

The Board of Trustees takes its responsibilities to this organization and to the community very seriously. 

Consistent with other birth centers around the nation, the North Shore Birth Center is experiencing a significant rise in the cost of malpractice insurance premiums. 

The Board of Trustees is diligently weighing the impact that the closure of the Birth Center would have on the community; the level of community interest in its continued operation has not gone unnoticed. The Board intends to leave the Birth Center services unchanged while it continues to examine and discuss this important issue.
