Havana.- The Vladimir Ilich Lenin Hospital, in the eastern Cuban city of Holguin, was certified as a Friend of Mothers and Children.
That condition is an acknowledgement of the hospital's achievements in the Mother-Child Program, making emphasis on the reduction in children and mothers mortality rates.
In order to earn that certification, experts assessed the institution's work for several days, as well as the efforts by nurses, physicians and other workers.
Moreover, they acknowledged the quality of services at the perinatology and childbirth wards, as well as other areas that provide mother-child services.
This year, the Friend of Mothers and Children program has granted that condition to 18 medical institutions in Havana, Guantanamo, Santiago de Cuba, Granma and Holguin provinces.
