1. AABC Birth Center Care Wins Health Value Award

The Validation Institute has awarded AABC Birth Center Care the Health Value Award in the Program Provider - Speciality Obstetrics category. The Health Value Awards recognize outstanding services, products, and programs across 24 categories spanning the health care industry.

AABC Birth Center Care is based on best maternity care evidence. Comprehensive prenatal care is provided in a relaxed, respectful environment of informed, shared decision-making. Birth centers lead to cost savings from better prepared mothers and families, reduced risk of preterm birth and low birthweight, success with breastfeeding, and reduction of cesareans.

AABC was among an elite group of 30 companies and individuals leading innovative changes in healthcare. Other award recipients included The Leapfrog Group, Anthem BCBS Enhanced Personal Health, American Airlines, Pittsburgh Business Group on Health, and the State of Montana Health Care & Benefits Division to name a few.

Health Value Award candidates complete a lengthy and rigorous application process, particularly those, like AABC, applying in a validated category. These companies undergo an in-depth evaluation to ensure the accuracy of their performance claims.
