Colorado Knows that The BirthPlace Does It Best!
Did you know that The BirthPlace was awarded the Colorado Can Do 5 Breastfeeding Award in 2012 from the Colorado Department of Public Health?
What Does That Mean?
For mothers who deliver at hospitals that have received the Colorado Can Do 5 Breastfeeding Award, they will receive these five best practices during their stay:
- Newborn is breastfed in the first hour after birth
- Only breastmilk is fed to the newborn while in the hospital
- Newborn and mom will stay in the same room while in the hospital
- A pacifier is not provided to, or used by, the new born while in the hospital
- Lactation information is provided to the new mom before leaving the hospital, including a Help Line number to call when needed
- Access to the Mothers Milk Bank of Colorado, allowing new moms access to donor breastmilk for babies with a medical need
Other Awards to Note
The BirthPlace received the distinguished Blue Distinction + Award from Blue Cross Blue Shield. This award is for expertise in delivering quality specialty care and safety and cost efficiency in delivering specialty care.
In addition, The BirthPlace has also been noted on the Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll. We have been recognized by the Immunization Action Coalition (Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment) as being a part of the Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll for having 92.2% of infants born at our hospital receive the Hepatitis B birth dose. The average percent of infants receiving the hepatitis B birth dose at Colorado hospitals is 76.4% and the Healthy People 2020 goal is 85%.
