Hillcrest Awarded Top Honors in Ohio First Steps for Healthy Babies Program in 2015

Hillcrest Hospital is one of two Cleveland Clinic hospitals that has been awarded all five stars in the Ohio First Steps for Healthy Babies program this year. This  initiative  is a voluntary breastfeeding designation program developed by Ohio Hospitals Association  and the Ohio Department of Health to recognize maternity centers in Ohio for taking steps to promote, protect and support breastfeeding in their organization. First Steps is part of OHA’s initiative to reduce infant mortality in Ohio. Research has shown breastmilk is associated with a reduction in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. A star is awarded for every two steps achieved in the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, as defined by the World Health Organization and Baby-Friendly USA. Hospitals can earn a total of five stars as a part of this effort.The other Cleveland Clinic facility awarded all five stars was Fairview Hospital, located on Cleveland's west side.

Our goal is to provide timely information to the community and the media on Hillcrest Hospital news, programs, services and events.
