Platte County Memorial Hospital hits baby record
Hospital staff delivers 14 babies in one month
WHEATLAND, Wyo. (June 14, 2013) – The stork was busy this May in Wheatland. Doctors at Platte County Memorial Hospital delivered 14 babies during the month which is a record-breaking month for deliveries at the hospital.
Hospital staff researched as far back as September 1999 and couldn’t find any record where 14 births occurred in the same month. The closest was March 2001 when they delivered 13 babies.
For perspective, PCMH delivered six babies in April and four babies in January, February and March of this year.
Candy Anderson, financial analyst at PCMH, said the hospital had been quite busy in May in addition to the number of babies. “It was a good extension on the part of all the hospital employees to care for everyone.”
“It is always an exciting challenge when our census fluctuates so much,” said Abby Bremer, RN senior clinical manager at PCMH. “We are very honored to have had the opportunity to care for all of the families who welcomed a newborn into this world at PCMH.”
