Good Samaritan celebrates first baby born at new hospitalPublished 12/22/2004

While OB nurses in Denver area hospitals are wondering which hospital will have the first baby born in the New Year, Exempla Good Samaritan recently celebrated its first baby ever born within the walls of the new facility.

Alexis Bentley is the first baby to be delivered at Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center, which opened Dec. 1. The baby girl weighed in at 7 pounds and 5 ounces and arrived at 8:01 a.m. In celebration of the baby’s arrival, a lullaby was broadcast on the overhead speakers of the hospital.

The baby’s mother, Amy Gillean of Lakewood, wanted to have her baby at a new hospital. "Everyone was really wonderful," she said. "The nurse was here the whole time, which is really rare. Everything was so convenient and right there in the room. I didn’t have to leave the room for anything."

Dr. Steve Volin of The Women’s Health Group delivered the baby and agreed that the entire staff and facility is geared toward the mother and baby. "This is something we’ve looked forward to for the past year and a half as we helped plan the hospital," he said. "The electronic medical record system made all the information easy to access. It is extremely satisfying to see a beautiful, healthy baby grace the new hospital."

Patients and family can share in the birthing experience at EGSMC’s Center for Childbirth with its family-friendly environment. "After a year of hard work we finally celebrate our first new life," said Stephanie Roderick, director for the Center for Childbirth. "It was a joy to put the patient and family at the center of our every thought, communication and action."
