Mothers Nursing Room

Jamaica Hospital Medical Center encourages and supports a mother’s decision to breastfeed/chestfeed. We have opened our Mothers Nursing Room for members of our community, hospital visitors and employees who are nursing to utilize at our hospital.

While women may breastfeed/chestfeed in any public space, our Mothers Nursing Room allows women the privacy if they desire to breastfeed/chestfeed their babies or express milk in a clean and spacious environment. This room is located on the ground floor of the main hospital and has two areas separated by privacy curtains as well as comfortable chairs and a sink for hand hygiene. A changing table is also provided as well as educational materials about successful breastfeeding/chestfeeding.

It is the Hospital’s policy that any employee or member of the community who needs to express human milk or breastfeed/chestfeed their infant will have access to this room 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For entry, keys will be kept with an Admitting Representative at the front desk. Guests will be expected to sign in and out of the Log Book.

Jamaica Hospital Medical Center continues to make enhancements that provide quality care to the community.
