Sparrow hosts Baby-Friendly Certification Celebration

Published: April 24, 2015

Many proud Caregivers and guests joined in the festivities for Sparrow’s Baby-Friendly® Certification Celebration on Thursday, April 23 in the Sparrow Professional Building, Third Floor Atrium.

With nearly a quarter-million baby deliveries to our credit, Sparrow is already the premier birthing hospital in mid-Michigan.

Sparrow is now mid-Michigan’s only Baby-Friendly® Hospital, a certification that demonstrates excellence in providing evidence-based, Patient-centered maternity care that promotes best practices in infant feeding and mother/baby bonding.

We’re proud to say that only six hospitals in Michigan and only 245 in the entire country hold the Baby-Friendly designation. Being Baby-Friendly is another way that Sparrow is improving the health of the people in our communities.

Congratulations to all our Caregivers who worked so hard to attain this global benchmark in quality care for mothers and babies!
