Mothers know there is nothing better than the sound of their baby's healthy heart beat, but premature births and low birth weight are often linked to infant mortality.

That's why officials are opening the Easy Access Clinic at Hiawassee Plaza in Pine Hills.

"The 32808 and 32818 zip codes have one of the highest mortality rates in our area," said Jennie Jones, the executive director at the Easy Access Clinic.

Joseph said the new clinic will target uninsured, under-insured and low income women. Joseph also has a facility in Winter Garden.

"They treat you like family, and they make you feel they have your back, no matter what," said patient Crystal De Leon.

"It's a comprehensive service covering the entire spectrum through the child bearing years, pregnant or not, with friendly providers. We don't turn anybody away," Joseph said.

Joseph said the need is tremendous in Pine Hills.

"We are at a situation I consider crisis. We have birth outcomes that are double, if not triple, for women of color," Joseph said.

Last year, more than 1,300 babies died in Florida before their first birthday, with 84 of them in Orange County.

"If we can't keep a baby in its mother's belly for the full term, instead of into the NICU, we are saving a lot of money. If we provide access to medical care, women don't have to go the the ER for medical care," Joseph said.

Supporters believe this model works.

"You get a healthier baby when you're a happier mama, so it just makes sense," De Leon said.
