The Stephanie V. Blank Center for Safe and Healthy Children at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta began implementing The Period of PURPLE Crying® program in October 2009 in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Children’s at Scottish Rite location. Since then, we have added the program to the services included at the Children’s at Egleston NICU, our primary care center in Chamblee and the special care unit at Northside Hospital.
In 2012, the Center for Safe and Healthy Children began a coordinated effort to bring The Period of PURPLE Crying® program to more families in Georgia. The Center is currently partnering with the Georgia First Steps program, and will serve over 7,000 families across the state with PURPLE. We are working towards expanding the reach of this program through new partnerships.
