Gove County Medical Center has received the Gold Level "Breastfeeding Employees Support Award" from the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition and its Business Case for Breastfeeding program.

The award is based on proven and established standards to benefit employers and employees. It recognizes businesses that provide support services to their breastfeeding employees, to include education as well as the time and space for employees to nurse and/or pump breast milk at their workplace. The award, the top ranking of three sponsored by the Coalition, was presented by Brenda Bandy, director of the Business Case for Breastfeeding program in Kansas.

According to Bandy, Gove County Medical Center received the award for achieving a high level of support to their employees as outlined in the Coalition's criteria. She said they provide a "gold level" pumping room, allow flexible time to pump, and have instituted a policy of breastfeeding support.
