15 Washington hospitals adopt TeamBirth

TeamBirth, a novel care delivery model developed in 2021 that slowly rolled out across top hospitals like Cleveland Clinic, has made its way to the West Coast, being implemented across 15 hospitals in Washington, according to an Oct. 23 news release.

The Washington State Hospital Association said this is the first of three cohorts planning to implement the care model. 

"We are excited to be one of the first states in the country to implement TeamBirth." Cassie Sauer, the CEO of the Washington State Hospital Association stated in the release. "Our hospitals are committed to those giving birth having the best possible experience in the hospital bringing their new child into the world." 

The TeamBirth model prioritizes check-ins with all members of a patient's care team and family at key points to streamline communication about birth preferences and patient status. It was created by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Ariadne Labs and UMass Memorial Health. 

The first 15 hospitals in Washington to adopt the model include:

  • Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington
  • Confluence Health Hospital Central Campus in Wenatchee
  • Coulee Medical Center in Grand Coulee
  • EvergreenHealth in Kirkland
  • Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue
