Abstract

In 1967 North Carolina’s medical centers began development of perinatal intensive care units. In response to recommendations from the Task Force on Maternal and Infant Health, the North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 1240 in March, 1974. This bill established the Regionalized Perinatal Care Program with the underlying premise being that medical centers with perinatal specialists would care for the high-risk mothers and fetuses within each region.
