TriStar Ashland City Medical Center has partnered with the Tennessee Department of Health in an effort to reduce infant mortality by creating a hospital safe sleep policy. One of the top priorities of the Tennessee Department of Health is to reduce the state’s infant mortality rate (a measure of how many babies die before reaching their first birthday). According to the Department of Health, 20 percent of all infant deaths in Tennessee are due to unsafe sleep practices.
