Princeton, NJ (Vocus) June 1, 2010 -- PeriGen, Inc., the only OB-specific risk reduction company to provide solutions which generate immediate quantifiable clinical and financial value, awarded MedStar Health’s Franklin Square and Harbor Hospitals with the prestigious Award for Advancing the Science of OB Care Through Research Using PeriBirth™, an OB specific clinical decision support solution which recognizes and assures that the prescribed course of care is followed and documented, assisting the facilities’ doctors and nurses, and improving the quality of patient 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 MedStar, and specifically at Franklin Square and Harbor Hospitals,” 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 their hospitals. We are pleased to recognize their commitment to OB patient safety.”

Harbor Hospital, also located in Baltimore, is a 222-bed facility located on the scenic Patapsco River and offering leading-edge technology and world-class physicians. The award was presented by Emily Hamilton, M.D., PeriGen’s Senior Vice President of Clinical Research.

''I am so pleased to be selected as a recipient of the Advancing the Science of OB Care Through Research award,'' said Marion Kerns, B.S., M.S., R.N., Director of Nursing at Harbor Hospital. ''I appreciate the farsightedness of PeriGen's leadership in establishing such awards to encourage research excellence. Though I feel quite undeserving of this award, I certainly appreciate PeriGen’s thoughtfulness in presenting it to me.''
