Since 1974 the Regionalized Perinatal Program in Florida has been growing and developing. Initiated through the cooperative efforts of neonatologists from five centers throughout the state; expanded to include obstetric and developmental components; formalized into law in 1976 via Florida Statute 383.15-21 to its present status as a highly efficient and complex organization now involving nine centers including special units in children's hospitals and complex neonatal surgery components, this program has resulted in a significant decrease in perinatal mortality and neonatal long-term morbidity.
