Report highlights "Maternal Care Deserts" in Ill.
A March of Dimes report showed that more than 33% of counties in Illinois are "Maternal Care Deserts" that lack hospitals with obstetric services, obstetricians or certified nurse-midwives. The #BlanketChange initiative advocates for greater investment in maternal care both before and after delivery.

Ill. law targets flu shots for health care workers
A new law in Illinois mandates flu shots for those employed at more than 3,000 hospital and health care facilities and provides exceptions only for those with religious objections or a "medical problem that would be complicated by getting the vaccine." OSF Healthcare and Carle Foundation Hospital offer flu shots to all staff and have vaccination rates of about 90%, similar to the national average for hospital employees.
