CHEER CHAMPION OF THE WEEK

MERIT HEALTH WOMAN'S HOSPITAL

CHEER is celebrating a Mississippi CHAMPS hospital this week: Merit Health Woman’s Hospital was recently re-designated as Baby-Friendly! Located in Flowood, Merit Health Woman’s is one of the only hospitals in Mississippi built exclusively for the care and treatment of women. The facility has been a part of CHAMPS since 2015 and became a designated Baby-Friendly facility in September 2018. Over the past few years, the hospital team has been dedicated to quality improvement work and sustainability.
