CVMC New Year's Baby is Born!

Nephi, UT 1/10/2018 – With the birth of a new year we are celebrating with the first birth at Central Valley Medical Center! While the baby wasn’t due to arrive until January 15th, she just couldn’t wait to get here and meet her family.

The first baby born at CVMC in 2018 was delivered by Dr. Jerald B Taylor, MD on January 10th at 3:52 p.m. weighing in at 8 pounds 0 ounces and 20.25 inches long. The new baby girl will be named Jimena and is the sixth child of her proud parents Juan and Angelica Mireles.

“I don’t think that there is any better way to start a new year than with a new baby to take home! In my opinion, you will never experience anything else like taking a baby home for the first time. It’s an awesome feeling, and we couldn’t be happier for the Mireles family,” commented Nick Stewart, Marketing Director at Central Valley Medical Center.

Being the first to be born gives great bragging rights, but her parents and Baby Girl Jimena get to go home with some extra goodies as part of the celebration too. CVMC Administration provides a generous $400 discount on the hospital bill for their New Year’s baby. Along with this discount, the hospital labor and delivery staff put together a generous basket with a Mom care package and items such as diapers, wipes, a baby bouncer, baby books, bulb syringe, swaddling blankets, toys, picture frames, blankets and outfits, all wrapped up in a new laundry basket.

“We love being able to be part of this special time in people’s lives. Angelica mentioned to me that her family had discussed how awesome it would be to have the New Year’s Baby for their last child so I was delighted to see that it had worked out that way! It is important to us that our families here at CVMC have the best experience possible. We make sure that all of our patients receive the highest quality of care, in the best manner possible, so they feel safe and comfortable during their stay,” said Annie Hatch, RN, Women and Newborn Service Manager at Central Valley Medical Center.

We also want to give a huge shout out to the members of our local community who also jumped in to show their support during this fun event; local businesses, which provided donations this year included: American First Credit Union, Boutique on Main, Choice Do It Best Hardware, Nebo Queen Drive Inn, Movies Plus & Lotsa Motsa Pizza, Nebo-Leavitt Insurance Agency, and Nephi Western Credit Union; along with The Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP) donating a $50 savings certificate.

Congratulations to the Mireles family!
