                                Neonatal Outreach and Maternal Health Education in Southwest Georgia

                                As Southwest Georgia’s designated Perinatal Center, the Perinatal Outreach Department at Phoebe serves the educational needs for both maternal and neonatal problems that may arise anywhere in Southwest Georgia.

                                Neonatal outreach education classes and maternal outreach education classes are offered in the hospitals of Southwest Georgia and at Phoebe Putney on a regular basis.

                                The program works closely with the perinatologist and neonatologists at Phoebe to conduct site visits, consultations, and peer reviews for the referring hospitals in Phoebe's perinatal region.
