VA hospital receives high honor

Norton Community Hospital's Family Birth Center is being recognized for its efforts to reduce the number of elective, non-medically necessary births before a mother's 39th week of pregnancy.

The hospital says the goal is to reduce early deliveries to give more babies a healthy start. The March of Dimes, the Virginia Hospital, and Healthcare Association will hold a ceremony in the hospital's family birth center Monday afternoon.

Norton Community Hospital is one of only 21 hospitals in the state, and the only one in Wise County, to receive this recognition.
