Princeton, NJ (Vocus) May 7, 2010 -- PeriGen, Inc., the only OB-specific risk reduction company to provide solutions which generate immediate quantifiable clinical and financial value, awarded Lenox Hill Hospital with the prestigious Award for OB Clinical Excellence, which recognizes their all-around peerless performance in providing safety for their patients using the PeriBirth system of care.

The Award was presented at PeriGen's 2010 Knowledge Summit in Washington, D.C., a gathering of nationally-recognized obstetric experts and safe birth advocates who exchanged ideas and information on how to improve the standard of care for U.S. mothers and the more than 4 million babies expected to be born this year.

"We are proud to honor our colleagues and friends at Lenox Hill Hospital,” said Donald A. Deieso, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO, PeriGen, Inc. "These devoted caregivers have made a significant impact on the safety of their patients, and on the quality of obstetric care offered at Lenox Hill. We are pleased to recognize their commitment to OB patient safety.”

A 652-bed, acute care hospital located on Manhattan's Upper East Side, Lenox Hill Hospital has earned a national reputation for outstanding patient care and innovative medical and surgical treatments This award was presented by Dan O'Keefe, PeriGen's Chief Medical Officer, and Vicki Lucas, PeriGen's Chief Nursing Officer.

"We are so pleased to receive this honor,” said Mia Patunas-Rubin, Clinical Coordinator of Maternal Child Health and the Prenatal Safety Nurse at Lenox Hill Hospital. "We share this award with all of the hard working clinicians at Lenox Hill Hospital without whom we could not have achieved what we did. It was only possible as a team. To have our hard work acknowledged is very rewarding.”

Recent reports indicate that maternal healthcare is at an all-time crisis point in America. Amnesty International ranked the United States 46th worldwide in infant mortality rate in their report "Deadly Delivery: The Maternal Healthcare Crisis in the USA,” behind Cuba and just ahead of Croatia. In addition, The Lancet recently published a report on maternal mortality rates in which the United States' rankings fell precipitously. PeriGen is at the forefront in releasing solutions that improve maternal and perinatal healthcare outcomes, including innovative products like PeriBirth and PeriCalm.
