Yale-New Haven Hospital | New Haven, Conn.
As the leading health care organization in Greater New Haven, Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) demonstrates its longtime commitment to families – especially mothers and children – by providing a variety of wide-ranging programs. Working within our diverse urban surroundings, YNHH partners with parents to support healthy children through initiatives both within the hospital and out in the community. These initiatives include:

- Healthy Start – In conjunction with the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, offers uninsured pregnant women and children to age 2 free medical care. This program has been in operation since 1997.

- Supplemental Infant Program (SIP) – Offers low-income postpartum mothers who are not breastfeeding additional formula beyond that provided by the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program. This program has been in operation since 2008.
