Breast-milk Dispensary Opens in Green Bay

Green Bay’s HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center – in partnership with Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes – is now home to northeast Wisconsin’s first breast-milk dispensary

Located in the medical center’s Women and Infants Center, 1726 Shawano Ave. in Green Bay, the dispensary has pasteurized donor breast milk readily available to hospitalized infants and to the public for purchase. All of the breast milk is tested and pasteurized by Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes.

The center also accepts donations of breast milk by women who have been pre-screened by Mothers’ Milk Bank. Approved donor milk is tested, pasteurized and sent to hospitals throughout Wisconsin and Illinois for dispensing.
