Funding aims to help hospital improve prenatal, maternal care

Posted: Updated:

NYC Health and Hospitals Coney Island in Brooklyn will soon help provide better prenatal and maternal care.

City Council members Mark Treyger and Carlina Rivera are uniting with the administration at the hospital hoping to make a difference.

Treyger and Rivera have secured $400,000 in the 2020 budget to invest in critical equipment upgrades and new medical devices at the hospital so doctors can serve more patients, increase access to reproductive healthcare services, and provide high-quality prenatal and maternal care.

The hospital will be receiving three new ultrasound machines, a portable ultrasound machine for labor and delivery, and urodynamics testing.

This is all in an effort to reduce the maternal mortality rate in New York City.
