In 2018, the Women and Infants Center at AHN West Penn Hospital became the first in southwestern PA to win the IBCLC Care Award. This award is given jointly by the International Board of Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) and the International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA) in recognition of the highest level of support to breastfeeding families and hospital staff. AHN’s Jefferson and Forbes Hospital also won this award for breastfeeding support excellence.
The IBCLC Care Award is valid for 2 years, and the current list of awardees can be found here.
The benefits of award-winning lactation care and support include:
Most health insurance companies provide new moms with breast pumps. Our on-site medical equipment representatives work with your insurance provider to supply you with a breast pump before you and your baby leave the hospital.
