Lexington Medical Center is pleased to announce the birth of the first baby born inside our new patient care tower!
Baby Savannah Kate came into the world on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 11:35 a.m. She weighs 8 pounds, 4 ounces and is 21 inches long.
Mom Katlyn, dad Jake and big brother Jackson have welcomed her with open arms.
"The new Labor and Delivery unit is so beautiful," Katlyn said. "There's so much natural light in each room."
Mom and baby are doing great. The Chapin family will call the baby "Anna Kate."
The patient care tower is the new home of Lexington Medical Center's Labor and Delivery and Mother/Baby units. The hospital has a proud tradition and legacy of delivering bundles of joy. More than 100,000 babies have entered the world here since the hospital opened in 1971. Today, Lexington Medical Center delivers more babies than any other hospital in the Midlands.
Congratulations to Katylyn and her family, and welcome baby Anna Kate!
