CHKD begins work on breast milk bank next month

Recognizing the unique nutritional value and life-saving properties of human breast milk for their tiniest babies, Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters will start the first human donor milk bank in the state. Construction on the $500,000 project will begin next month, with an expected completion date of summer 2014 when it will join 13 others in the United States that follow regulations established by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America.
