Why Choose Ohio State

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has been recognized by the Ohio First Steps for Healthy Babies program, the Ohio Hospital Association and Ohio Department of Health for its efforts to promote, protect and support breastfeeding, receiving the “Maternity Care Best Practice Award” for 2017.

This recognition indicates Ohio State’s commitment to best practices, choosing to not distribute infant formula or formula company-sponsored sample packs to patients. In addition, Ohio State Wexner Medical Center also provides information and implements hospital practices supportive of breastfeeding and the Ohio First Steps for Healthy Babies program.
