current university clinics stopped being a part of the State Faculty Hospital and became a resort institute of Ministry of Health headquartered in Prague–Podolí, an organization under direct supervision of the Ministery of Health.
Currently, the Institute of Mother and Child Care (ÚPMD) belongs to the four largest obstetrics clinics in the Czech Republic with over 2500 births a year. ÚPMD is one of the 12 perinatological centers
created by the Ministery of Health with an eye to concentrate women with serious pathological states in pregnancy, including untimely births. Although ÚPMD gives brith to three times more high-risk babies under 1000 g compared to other clinics in the Czech Republic, the perinatal death rate has been lower than the national average for the past five years.Since 1988, ÚPDM has been cooperating with the World Health Organization for Perinatology.
