MHA Grateful for State of the State Focus on Maternal Health

Posted on January 29, 2020

The following statement can be attributed to Brian Peters, CEO of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association.

MHA CEO Brian PetersWe are grateful Gov. Whitmer is bringing attention to maternal health in Michigan. The preventable death of any woman during or following pregnancy is unacceptable. Currently, women of color are affected at a significantly higher rate than non-Hispanic white women. As a healthcare community, removing health disparities is crucial in improving the quality and safety of care in Michigan for every mom and baby. We look forward to working with Gov. Whitmer in ensuring health equity for all.
