Day Care Center

In 1983, The Journal of the American Medical Association published an article with the title "Hospitals Should Provide DayCare for Children of Employees." The article started off with a list of common hospital problems, including a late secretary, a substitute nurse who isn't familiar with the facility or a resident who's scrambling to find someone to watch his child. The article goes on to state that the common thread between all the problems is the lack of daycare. The article argued that by offering day care, hospitals could improve worker productivity, decrease turnover and help with recruitment. Although there were already hospitals in the 80s that offered day care to their staff, this article was published because it wasn't a very widespread practice.

Fast-forward to the present, and it’s not difficult to see that child care for hospital employees has come a long way.

For example, Stanford Hospital offers two part-time nursery schools, as well as two full-time child care programs to all of its employees.

The child care center stays open thirteen hours a day to ensure that employees with longer shifts are still able to take full advantage of this resource.

According to the Maryland Child Care Resource Network, more than 65% of workers have at least one young child. Whether a worker is a single parent or half of a dual income family, quality and reliable child care is a top priority among this majority of the population.

In addition to the obvious convenience, one of the reasons so many parents prefer this child care option to all others is because it gives them closer access to their children, as well as their children’s teachers. If a problem ever arises, parents can be immediately alerted and brought into the situation.

The main consideration hospitals have to make about whether or not to offer on-site child care is it does require a large initial investment, as well as ongoing funding.

Additionally, extensive research and planning needs to be done before the project can actually get started. And once the facility is complete, it will need to be prepped.
