Hospital goes purple for premature birth awareness

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - UCSD Medical Center is going purple.

The Hillcrest hospital will be lit up in purple for the rest of November to raise awareness about premature births.

Officials say while California's pre-term birth rate is the second lowest in the nation and has seen a significant decrease, one in 11 babies born here every year is born prematurely.
