Picture of a young couple holding their Newborn baby. Cabinet Peaks Medical Center was rockin' in the New Year 2022 in style this year. Three babies were born in just over 36 hours. The first of the three was born on New Years Eve and was blessed to have three of CPMC's Clinical Managers as the bedside clinicians. As with any great story, it didn't come without excitement or challenges.
Cabinet Peaks Medical Center was rockin' in the New Year 2022 in style this year. Three babies were born in just over 36 hours. The first of the three was born on New Years Eve and was blessed to have three of CPMC's Clinical Managers as the bedside clinicians. As with any great story, it didn't come without excitement or challenges.
As the holiday came in full swing, it was an all-hands-on deck situation, "Everyone involved was amazing; our Nurses, Acute Care Team, Respiratory Therapists, Charges Nurses, CRNA's, the entire OR Team, Lab, EVS, and Dietary Teams were all active and willing to help however asked. Dr. Williams and Dr. Jarrett were part of huge the success of this whirlwind weekend" stated Kimberlee Rebo, RN, BSN, CMSRN and Manager of Acute Care Services at CPMC. "As we know, babies will come when they come and often on their own terms!" stated Rebo. The OR team graciously waited in house for any emergency, and additional OB RNs offered their assistance even though they were not scheduled to work the holiday weekend.
"Dr. Taylor Williams was the main provider for all of these patients and handled it like a pro! He gave each patient and family his undivided attention and care. He carefully listened, acted in the patient's best interest, and went above and beyond to make sure all his patients received the best care possible. Although he spent much of the weekend fielding calls from the team and being in house caring for his patients, he didn't seem to bat an eye. Bless him...all of this so graciously with a brand-new baby of his own at home too!" Rebo complimented. The third baby of the whirlwind weekend was born later in the evening on New Year's Day! All three of the babies born over the weekend are healthy, and happily welcomed by their families and the team at CPMC.
The baby in the middle was officially named New Year's Baby of 2022. Cabinet Peaks Medical Center staff and physicians welcomed Tony Johnson, son of proud parents Jeremiah and Gabby Johnson, as the first baby born in 2022. Tony made his entrance at 3:26 pm on Saturday, January 1st, weighing 7 lbs, 7oz, and was 20 1/4 inches long. Dr. Taylor Williams was the attending physician.
Baby Tony's family, from Moyie Springs, MT, is excited he is here. He has a 3-year-old sister, Kiera Lee, that can't wait to meet him! Tony's parents stated, "We are both super grateful to Dr. Williams and all the staff at Cabinet Peaks for their patience and love during the process. They were all supportive and kind for the whole time we were there.
The New Year's baby is traditionally celebrated throughout South Lincoln County, and many community members and businesses contribute to help make the celebration a bit more special. Along with Cabinet Peaks Medical Center, who provided the new little boy and his parents with a video baby monitor and a few necessities, other area businesses joined in the celebration. Cabinet Peaks Clinic Family Medicine donated a stroller; Cabinet Peaks Clinic OB/GYN donated a swing/bouncer; Glacier Bank provided a Rosauers Gift Card; and Northwest Community Health Center donated a baby bouncer.
The number of babies delivered annually at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center are on the rise. "We pride ourselves in our Birthing Services and in our remarkable Delivery Team here at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center," stated Rebo, "All of our Labor and Delivery rooms are completely private, offering a warm and intimate setting in which to bring new babies into the world and individualized care for this special time."
"At CPMC, we feel that all of our new additions deserve to be celebrated," continued Rebo. "We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide each of our newborns with a free newborn baby photo, an 'I was born at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center' onsie, a hand stitched blanket made by our Hospital Auxiliary Team, and crocheted infant hats made and donated with love by hospital and community members. Many other community organizations provide items and educational materials to our new moms & infants as well. New babies & families alike are celebrated and supported in this new adventure!"
