Once the milk is purchased, it is the hospital’s responsibility to dispense it to patients as they seLindsay McGuinesse fit. Mothers’ Milk Bank does charge a tissue processing fee for the milk, which covers some of the costs associated with the screening of the donors and processing of the milk. The hospital is responsible for paying this fee. Mothers’ Milk Bank cannot charge patients individually while they are receiving the milk from the hospital. If patients need milk after being discharged, they can contact Mothers’ Milk Bank directly to make arrangements.

One 24-week gestation baby girl named Casey was served recently at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. She did so well on donor milk that she was able to go home to Western Colorado after a shorter than normal hospital stay. Having donor human milk at our hospital is helping to save lives every day.
