    • Abstract:
      This article focuses on infant mortality rates. Since 1986, reduction of infant mortality rates has been a major health objective. The most effective projects to reduce infant mortality rates involve multiple strategies; that is, they help the patient make contact with and take advantage of the services of multiple agencies, organizations, or providers. Infant mortality continues to be a public health problem in the United States, even though methods for its reduction are reasonably well established. Implementing and sustaining the procedures used in this study require skill and cooperation among a number of community agencies. Social work departments can not only help coordinate these services but also provide leadership in outreach and case management. The Greenville Hospital System, a community teaching hospital and one of the nation's first multihospital systems, provides comprehensive acute, psychiatric, rehabilitative, addictive and home care through seven hospital units located at various sites throughout the county.
