• TexasAIM

Through a partnership with the Texas Department of State Health Services, THA is working with 221 hospitals across the state to reduce preventable mortality and morbidity.

As COVID-19 sweeps the nation, hospitals’ ongoing work to welcome new life into the world is a welcome reminder that life does go on. In Texas, maternal fetal medicine providers are eagerly answering the call to protect both of their patients—mother and baby—through this pandemic and beyond. Read a recent article that ran in the May/June issue of Texas Hospitals to learn more about hospitals’ commitment to maternal safety through the TexasAIM initiative and other inpatient care precautions.

Hospitals participating in TexasAIM are encouraged to subscribe to receive DSHS' biweekly TexasAIM OB Care & COVID-19 newsletter. The newsletter provides quick summary updates on case counts, literature reviews and new resources. Please contact the DSHS TexasAIM team if you would like to be added to this mailing list.
