Howard County General Hospital: A Member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, has been a supportive voice for breastfeeding and has been designated as one of 90 hospitals nationwide to participate in the Best Fed Beginnings program recently launched by the National Initiative for Children’s Healthcare Quality (NICHQ).

“Howard County General is unique in that we see more than 90% of new mothers breastfeeding while in the hospital following delivery. The strong support services and breastfeeding programs we have in place at the hospital make it possible for these new mothers to successfully continue to breastfeed long after they leave us, which is very beneficial for the baby as well as the mother," states Tuvia Blechman, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics and Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Howard County General Hospital.
