While at Sibley, you may need to use a breast pump. Medela Symphony double-electric hospital-grade pumps are available for use during your stay. Our staff can assist you in learning how to operate the pump.

Should you want to use a pump at home, we sell and rent Medela breast pumps. Our staff can assist you in determining the best breast pump for your needs.

Insurance companies have some variation in co-pays. Check with your insurance company to determine what pump is covered. Some carriers also have contracts with companies who rent equipment. If you are interested in obtaining a breast pump through your insurance, Pharmaquip, Johns Hopkins’ on-site equipment provider, may be able to assist you. Please note that not all insurance plans participate with Pharmaquip; we encourage you to contact your insurance company to inquire about your plan’s coverage for breast pump purchases and rentals.

Returning a rental breast pump:

If you have rented a Symphony breast pump from Sibley, return it to Team Station in Building B, 4th floor, A Side. Take the visitor elevator to the 4th floor and turn left. Please note that you will need to buzz the doorbell to be let into Family Centered Care Unit. When you return the pump, you will be given a signed receipt to document that your rental is complete. Pumps can be returned at any time of day, any day of the week.

Arrangements can also be made to return the equipment by courier for a fee. Please contact the Lactation Services Department for details.
