There are two lactation rooms at ISMMS where you may use your own equipment or the hospital-grade Medela Symphony pumps provided. For your comfort and privacy, each lactation room has three private pumping areas each with breast pump. If you wish to use the pumps provided, you must use your own accessories as described below.
Using Lactation Rooms
The lactation rooms are located in the Annenberg Building located at 1468 Madison Avenue at East 100th Street.
Open 24 hours, daily, room 234 is located on the MC level of Annenberg in the hallway shared with the Employee Pharmacy. No advance reservation required. Also in the Annenberg Building, there is a second lactation room located on the main floor of the lobby to the left of the elevator bank designated for floors 1-10. This room is also available for use 24 hours a day, however you must reserve it by calling the Medical Education front desk at 212-241-6691, Monday to Friday, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm to receive the security code.
If you plan to use the breast pumps available in the lactation rooms, you need to provide your own breast pump accessory equipment, including caps, membranes, and tubes. You may purchase caps and membranes in the KP Gift Shop on the first floor of the Klingenstein Pavilion (KP) at 1176 Fifth Avenue, north of 98th Street. The cost is $10 for hospital employees/students. The tubes are $6.00 each. They can also be purchased on the 8th floor of the KP building in the breast pump office located in the family waiting room. Different tubing may also be required by the user as personal use Medela pumps have different tubing.
