Boise, IDAHO - New Year’s Day 2011 dawned with the St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center recording the first new baby of the year, and St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center welcoming the second baby of the year.
A baby boy was born at 3:19 a.m. at St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center to parents April and Seth Hanson of Boise. Carter was a healthy 8 pounds and 2 ounces.
A baby girl was born at 5:39 a.m. at St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center to Laura and Pete Doornenbal of Caldwell. Ella Marie was a healthy 9 pounds.
To help mark the special occasion, St. Luke’s provided families with a special New Year’s baby gift basket. The basket included a variety of baby items as well as a $50 Target gift card.
St. Luke’s Health System delivers more babies than any other system in Idaho. Each year nearly 6,000 babies are born at St. Luke’s Boise and Meridian hospitals in the Treasure Valley, and more than 8,500 babies are born at all five St. Luke’s hospitals. St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital in Boise is also home to Idaho’s first and still the state’s largest Newborn Intensive Care Unit. Opened in 1970, the NICU treats more than 1,000 premature babies every year. St. Luke’s expertise in treating premature infants has earned it a position as one of only 16 Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program (NIDCAP) training sites in the world.
Ken Dey served as Public Relations Coordinator at St. Luke's from 2008-2014.
