Women & Infants named Center of Excellence for Neonatal Care for fifth year
Date:2/22/2011

For the fifth consecutive year, Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island has been named a Center of Excellence for Neonatal Care by the Clinical Sciences Institute of OptumHealth, an independent audit company.
