Healthy Baby Network

Ingalls’ Healthy Baby Network is an outreach program designed to improve health outcomes of babies and young children born to economically disadvantaged women and teens in the south suburbs of Chicago by taking programs and services directly to those who need them most. Several studies have demonstrated that adolescents who receive early prenatal care, nutrition, and social support services deliver babies with higher birth weights and experience lower infant mortality. The Health Baby Network meets the need for prenatal care, education, and social services for economically disadvantaged pregnant adolescents and women and their babies.

Our community has many resources available to these women but until the Healthy Baby Network, they were not organized into a complete and easily accessed program that would ensure their full utilization. The result had been that too many of our community’s babies were born without benefit of prenatal care, putting the baby at greater risk for low birth weight and instances of infant mortality and other health complications. Through the Healthy Baby Network, Ingalls has organized a unique coalition of local providers, retailers, government agencies, schools and community organizations through which we are bringing prenatal care, education and social services directly to pregnant women and teens and their babies with the goal of achieving healthy birth weights and reducing instances of infant mortality. We believe that a key component of the program is the set of social services that are wrapped around the clinical services to provide a holistic approach to the mother’s overall health. The program is being implemented in three phases:
• Phase I – Prenatal Care
• Phase II – Infant and Child Wellness
• Phase III – Pregnancy Prevention

At Ingalls, we’re beating cancer every day. As medical science continues to make advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, Ingalls’ oncology program strives to make those advances readily available to its patients. Ingalls has long been recognized as the area’s leading provider of cancer research and treatment. In fact, our outcomes and survival rates not only exceed our competitors, they surpass national averages. To strengthen our resources in the war on cancer, Ingalls conducts a cancer clinical trials program to help develop new treatments, advance cancer care, and save lives.

Since the early 1970s, studies have been drawing attention to the fact that black Americans had higher rates of death from certain cancers than white Americans. African Americans have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any racial and ethnic group in the U.S. for most cancers. One of the factors in the differences in cancer outcomes for minorities is a lower rate of minority participation in cancer research activities such as cancer trials. Increasing minority participation in cancer research and cancer trials is vital to addressing the disparity for minority populations.

Twenty-Two African-American patients enrolled in oncology drug trials at Ingalls in 2016, 35% of the total patients on studies that year. The year prior, the percentage minority enrollment was nearly half, 49% in 2015. By comparison, the National Institutes of Health reports less than 2% of NIH-funded cancer research studies focus on non-white ethnic or racial groups, according to a study by UC-Davis.

Our commitment to cancer research and oncology care at Ingalls is well known and established in Chicagoland’s Southland. Our cancer clinical trials program draws on the expertise of national leaders in oncology such as MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Locally, Ingalls partners with prestigious academic institutions like University of Chicago Hospitals and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Ingalls’ cancer research staff – Mark Kozloff, M.D., James Wallace, M.D., Kimberly Kruczek, D.O. and Danielle Sterrenberg, M.D. – are recognized nationally as leaders of one of only six programs in the country to earn a Pacesetter Program designation by the American College of Surgeons. More than 60 cancer research protocols are underway at Ingalls this year, many of which are classified as Phase I or II, typically reserved for academic medical centers.

Dr. Kozloff and his team are passionate researchers committed to providing patients in the South Suburbs of Chicago the most advanced, innovative therapies in the prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer. Our team believes that the best management of an oncology patient is a well-designed clinical trial, understanding that clinical trial participation will lead to the best outcomes for the patient and provide the scientific community the vital data for improving the practice guidelines.
