We at BFUSA are so impressed with the facilities that have remained steadfast in their commitment to the Baby-Friendly designation pathway during the challenges that have come with the pandemic. These facilities have been remarkably flexible as we have shifted our process from in-person to virtual assessments. As a result, since last August, more than 20 facilities have been designated Baby-Friendly through our new virtual assessment process.
One of these facilities, White Plains Hospital in White Plains, New York, was recently recognized for their success in a wonderful segment on the local New York NBC News station. We wanted to share it with others in the Baby-Friendly network to celebrate this positive coverage and reinforce that we all have an important and appealing story to tell.
We congratulate the staff at White Plains Hospital for this fantastic coverage. And we thank you all for you continued support of Baby-Friendly.
