Last and First Babies Born at Old, New Hospitals
Posted on May 15, 2011
Amidst a well-orchestrated transition of 102 patients from the old to the new Mills-Peninsula Medical Center hospital, life went on and there were two historical debuts.
The last baby born at Peninsula Medical Center on Sunday, May 15, 2011 at 9:12 a.m., was Matthew Deninger, born to William and Heanna Deninger. Matthew’s big sister was also born at Peninsula Medical Center in the very same room. “We are actually happy that Matthew was born in the old hospital because his older sister was born there,” said Heanna Deninger. “In fact, they were both born in the same room.”
The first baby born at the new Mills-Peninsula Medical Center on Sunday, May 15, at 10:05 a.m., was Theo Rouspil. He weighed 9 and ½ pounds.
Also involved in the move were the newborn patients in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Belinda Wong, mother a three-week old baby who was moved from the NICU in the old hospital to the new also commented on the move.
“The move was very well organized, Belinda Wong said. “My baby was monitored throughout and we felt well cared for. We came to the community open house, so we knew what to expect at the new hospital. It’s very beautiful and spacious. Maybe Vanessa will have a baby here when she grows up.”
