Child Care Services Provided by Hospitals.
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
In an attempt to determine the extent to which hospitals had established child care services for their personnel, a survey was conducted of 3,000 hospitals with 100 beds or more. Out of nearly 2,000 hospitals which responded, 98 were operating child care centers, with about 500 more planning or at least showing interest in such a program. The study showed that employers benefit from these programs in terms of personnel recruitment and reduced absenteeism and labor turnover. Employees benefit by being able to work more hours with less worry about their children's safety. (BH)
