November was National Prematurity Awareness Month and the uber-popular breast pump and breastfeeding accessory company, Medela, held a campaign entitled the "Virtual Human Milk Collection". During this time, you were asked to visit Medela's website to vote for four NICUs to receive $5,000 each in neonatal human milk support products for their facility from Medela. I am happy to say that the results are in and the winners are announced! Drumroll, please...
- * Memorial Hospital at Gulfport, Gulfport, MS.
- * St. John Medical Center, Tulsa, OK.
- * The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA.
- * University of New Mexico Hospital, Albuquerque, NM.
These NICUs will receive: Medela Symphony® Preemie+™ program cards, Medela Symphony breastpumps, Waterless Milk Warmers™, Creamatocrit Plus™, Transport/Discharge Bags, Medela BabyWeigh™ scales and/or Medela NICU Education programs.
Congratulations to all four! Excellent job!!
