About the Maternal Child Health Center
Atrium Medical Center's (Atrium) Maternal Child Health Center (MCHC) provides a wide spectrum of care for women and children residing within Butler and Warren counties in southwest Ohio.
Collaboration Benefits Patients
Atrium MCHC collaborates with Dayton Children’s Specialty Care Center, which is located right next door, when sick or injured children need specialized pediatric care. As a result, Atrium MCHC patients have access to Dayton Children’s Hospital’s specialists, pediatric equipment, and services. MCHC patients benefit from the expertise of pediatric subspecialists in the areas of cardiology, urology, oncology, and orthopedics.
A social worker is also available to all of our patients. Each day during office hours, our on-site social worker assists mothers and children with challenges including:
- Discharge planning when a patient is ready to leave the hospital
- Applying for medical cards and government resources
- Obtaining additional family support
- Referrals for psychiatric care
Additionally, we provide access to lactation consultants to help new mothers learn how to breastfeed.
