ORRVILLE, Ohio (Aug. 30, 2018) – Aultman Orrville Hospital recently received a five-star rating for its achievements in the Ohio First Steps for Healthy Babies’ “Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding,” a list of evidence-based practices selected by global experts that have been shown to support breastfeeding. Aultman is one of 19 Ohio hospitals to receive this award.

First Steps is a voluntary program through the Ohio Hospital Association and the Ohio Department of Health that recognizes maternity centers for taking steps to promote, protect and support breastfeeding.

According to Tara Snyder, MSN, RN, C-EFM, executive director of nursing services at Aultman Orrville, a star is awarded for every two steps out of the ten that a hospital achieves, as defined by the World Health Organization and Baby-Friendly USA.

Earlier this year, Aultman Orrville Hospital received the Ohio First Steps for Healthy Babies’ “Maternity Care Best Practice” award, recognizing the hospital’s commitment to best practices in breastfeeding support.
