  • Michigan convened a state task force in September 2011 to develop recommendations for implementation of a regional perinatal system of care consistent with the State's Perinatal Level of Care Guidelines. MDHHS has partnered with stakeholders throughout the state to proceed with perinatal regionalization, ensuring appropriate designation, certification, transport, education, training, NICU transition and follow–up, and evaluation.
