New Mother-Baby Unit at University of Vermont Medical Center
We’ve had the pleasure of working on a very exciting project over the past few months! Healthy Living and Cafe proudly sponsored the kitchen in the new Glen and Rosemary Wright Mother-Baby Unit at University of Vermont Medical Center. The new unit is a wonderful addition to the hospital, bringing much needed updates that matches the high quality of care new moms receive at UVM Medical Center. There are 22 private rooms, equipped with bathrooms and murphy beds that pull down from the wall for overnight stays from a support person. The unit will open to patients on August 4th.
As for Healthy Living’s role, we sponsored the addition of a kitchen within the new unit. The kitchen has the features you’d expect: a sink, refrigerator, stocked cabinets, and also includes a water cooler that dispenses filtered water. Working with the team at Whole Health Nutrition, we put together information sheets of nutrition tips curated just for new moms, along with recipes. We hope the kitchen offers these new growing families a place to hydrate and refuel during this exciting time.
