Newborn nursery receives $2,000

Carolyn Willis, Associate Vice President for the Delta Health Alliance, presented representatives of Greenwood Leflore Hospital with a $2,000 check for the hospital’s newborn nursery.  This grant funding will assist in the hospital’s journey to become a Baby-Friendly designated hospital.  According to the World Health Organization, the Baby-Friendly initiative “is a global effort to implement practices that protect, promote and support breast-feeding.”  Pictured from left are, Willis, Cassandra Brown, Director of Maternal Child Health, Gloria Boyd, Chief Nursing Officer, and Key Britt, Vice President of Administrative Services.
