CNY Regional Perinatal Program

What is the CNY Regional Perinatal Program?

The Central New York Regional Perinatal Program (CNY-RPP) aims to promote healthy outcomes for women and children by ensuring that high risk mothers and their infants have timely access to a continuum of specialized care. Each hospital affiliates with a region and forms a transfer agreement with the Regional Perinatal Center (RPC).

As an affiliate, hospitals receive a number of services from the RPC. The community obstetricians and pediatricians receive consultation and specialized services. The Statewide Perinatal Data System is utilized to capture data on births, NICU admissions and maternal transports. These data are then analyzed and used to improve the quality of care region wide.
