Celebrating employees’ new bundles of joy 

Dutton Yount, born November 29, 2023, (on his father’s birthday) weighing in at a little over five pounds. Dutton is the son of Transportation Program Manager Dee Yount.

Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas was founded to support children, and this is done in many ways for patients thanks to the dedication of our employees. CHC/SEK wants to celebrate employees not only at work but in their personal lives as well, this includes their brand-new babies.  

To congratulate employees on welcoming their new bundle of joy, CHC/SEK created a bundle of its own to gift expecting employees or adoption of a baby.   

“While our baby boxes are a small piece of what is needed for a newborn, it’s our hope to remind employees we are excited for this next step in their lives, and we are here for them,” says Ashley Hopkins, Vice President of Human Resources.    

The gift includes the box (which is a diaper caddy), small books, a package of diapers and wipes, custom CHC/SEK branded onesie and blanket, and wellness information such as immunization schedules, well-child checkups, and other resources.  

What to do when the baby is on the way  

When it’s time to request FMLA, our benefits analyst coordinates with our engagement specialist to ensure that the employee’s name and estimated delivery date is tracked. When it is close to delivery time, the baby box is sent out to the employee. We have asked managers to let us know if they hear of the baby arriving earlier than expected.   

Is this for expectant or adoptive fathers too?  

This is for expectant or adoptive mothers and fathers. If mom and dad both work for CHC/SEK, they will receive only one basket.
