The National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program was created by Cribs for Kids, a Pittsburgh-based organization dedicated to preventing infant sleep-related deaths due to accidental suffocation.

Nanticoke Memorial Hospital also was recognized for following the safe sleep guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, and providing training programs for parents, staff and the community. Community outreach includes parent education and safe-sitter programs.
