Last month, Middlesex Hospital announced that it is now offering pasteurized donor breast milk to breastfed babies who are premature, or infants who have medical conditions such as low blood sugar or jaundice.

Based on data collected as part of its 2016 community health needs assessment, Middlesex Hospital has identified four priority areas that it will focus on in the coming years: mental health, substance abuse, the aging population and asthma, with added attention to social determinants of health and health equity.
