HMH welcomes first baby of 2020

On New Year’s Day, Hardin Memorial Health welcomed the first baby born at BirthPlace in 2019 – Benjamin “Benny” Arthur Yates.

Benny, son of Steven and Hope Yates, was born at 3:45 p.m. weighing a healthy 6-pounds, 12-ounces and 18 inches long.

Each year, the first baby born at HMH receives a special gift basket to mark the occasion. The basket included a silver rattle, stuffed animal, swaddling blanket and a silver cup from Clark Jewelers.

Congratulations and thank you for trusting the physicians, nurses and staff at HMH BirthPlace with this special New Year’s delivery.
