SCRMC HealthBreak | Baby-Friendly Designation, pt. 1

Posted on November 7, 2022

South Central Regional Medical Center is a Baby-Friendly Designated Facility.

Becky Page, RN, IBCLC, Maternal Child Coordinator, states, “When parents choose SCRMC as their birthing hospital they can expect nurses who have the latest evidence based education to help them reach their goal of feeding their infant.  As a Baby-Friendly hospital each nurse has completed 20 hours of breastfeeding education.  Our hospital has exceeded that goal and we now have 5 Certified Lactation Consultants (CLC) and one of a few International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) in our state on staff.  Nurses having advanced education results in our breastfeeding mothers being better educated and more successful upon discharge. Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative has brought cohesiveness to our facility, upholding the highest standards of infant care. South Central Regional Medical Center is proud to have achieved this goal!”
