In 2018, the Women and Infants Center at AHN West Penn Hospital became the first in southwestern PA to win the 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 breast-feeding families and hospital staff. In 2019, AHN Jefferson Hospital also won this award for breast-feeding support excellence.
The Care Award is valid for 2 years and in 2020, West Penn Hospital won the Care Award again; one of only 60 awarded nationwide.*
