Our commitment to patient- and family-centered care starts with the arrival of your new addition. That’s why we are currently pursuing our designation as a Baby-Friendly Hospital. It’s a three-year journey to ensure that mothers and babies get the best start at Memorial University Medical Center.
The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. It recognizes hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother-baby bonding.
To earn Baby-Friendly Hospital designation, we are working to implement the 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding.
Our goal is help mothers and babies establish a strong bond from birth. We promote that by implementing these initiatives.
