Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, and Healthy Children Cortland Regional Medical Center (CRMC)   Access to OB care
  1. Expand MCH and MOMS activities to include more education.
  2. The Maternity expansion at CRMC will encourage more mothers to deliver locally and hopefully will attract additional OB providers. CRMC has recruited an OB who is currently seeking approval to be a MOMS provider, bringing the number of Cortland County OB providers accepting Medicaid to three.
  3. Expand the Cortland County Health Department’s MCH services to include more nursing time allowing increased home visits. This expansion is dependent upon the county’s fiscal situation.
