The first baby of the New Year was born at CHI St. Alexius Health Williston Medical Center at 3:05 a.m. January 1, 2022.
Alfa and David rang in the New Year by welcoming their son David Sanchez II, into the world. David weighed 8 pounds, 5 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. David’s four older siblings are eager to meet him soon and join their parents in celebrating their newest New Year’s blessing.
“Dr. Teuma, Dr. Kadum and the entire team were incredible. We felt welcomed and supported from the moment we walked in,” said Alfa and David Sr. “We thought that we would have him in December, but he decided on being a New Year’s baby. We even saw fireworks from our room!”
A gift basket filled with baby essentials was presented to the family. The items were donated by Western Cooperative Credit Union, Upper Missouri District Health Unit and CHI St. Alexius Health. CHI St. Alexius Health Williston delivered 732 babies in 2021.
“We continue our commitment to delivering Williston’s future. Our dedicated team of nurses exemplify the core values of our organization showing compassionate care to all those seeking our services. I am honored to lead an extraordinary group of nurses and providers at CHI St Alexius Health Williston” stated Leona Lambert, Manager of Maternal Child.
