The Prisma Health Center for Pediatric Medicine in the Upstate was one of only three sites in the Southeast to receive the 2021 IBCLC Care Award from the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBLCE®) and the International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®).
The award recognizes hospitals, birthing facilities, birthing services and community-based health agencies with international board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) and a dedicated lactation support program.
This two-year award recognizes the Center for Pediatric Medicine for its quality improvement efforts to promote exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months of life in a culturally competent manner and to support lactating moms as they return to work. The center has two sites in Greenville and one in Travelers Rest.
Center for Pediatric Medicine, and all of our affiliate sites, participates in the QTIP program. According to the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, “the Quality through Technology and Innovation in Pediatrics (QTIP) program works to improve health care for children in South Carolina by working on quality measures and incorporating mental health into a medical home. Started in 2010 under a CHIPRA federal grant, this program brings practices together to collaborate on specific measures and foster quality improvement projects at each practice site.”
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Recognition Programs assess whether clinicians and practices support the delivery of high-quality care and are built on evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical standards of care.
