Virginia Hospital Center
Virginia Hospital Center is proud to provide three, private employee lactation rooms outfitted with hospital grade pumps. Prior to maternity leave, employees receive a packet about the lactation rooms and instructions on how to get a free attachment kit. Upon return to work, they receive all the details, access to a shared calendar, information about on-site breastfeeding support groups, and the number for the lactation consultant warm-line. The Hospital believes that providing employee lactation rooms is an important benefit, can be a deciding factor for new hires, and improves employee retention.
