HCMC, other hospitals use new app aimed at improving the experiences of Black birthing families

“There’s nothing unique about Hennepin (Healthcare) when it comes to outcomes related to Black and brown birthing people. We are a hospital in America that’s functioning with the same systemic racism issues that every hospital in America is functioning with,” Nneka Sederstrom said. “Just like everywhere, our patients have had the opportunity to not feel heard, not really be seen to not have their care.”

“We don’t think that that’s acceptable,” she said.
