Junea birth center receives accreditation
JUNEAU - The Juneau Family Birth Center was recently given an accreditation, meaning outside evaluators found it consistently provides a high level of service on a consistent level.
To become accredited, a birth center's services are evaluated by the Commission for Accreditation of Birth Centers, which measures the quality of care offered in a particular birth center against national standards of quality of care.
The center, a nonprofit organization, opened its doors April 1998 and has since expanded services to include a family practice clinic and social support services for families.
Plans are in place to build a new facility for the center next year and expand its services. The center will combine a midwifery birth center with a family health center, social services, mental health services, fitness classes and preventive education.
