For the first time ever, Salt Lake City knows exactly where it stands when it comes to premature births and the findings aren't what parents and doctors want to see.
Salt Lake City earned a 9.6 percent which is a "C" grade, according to the March of Dimes annual report.
The state of Utah earned a 9.1 percent scored a "B" grade on the report card.
That is because Provo scored much better with a 7.7 percent, an "A" grade, bringing up the state's average.
The U.S. as a whole also got a 9.6 percent, a "C" grade, the same as Salt Lake City.
