Health System Welcomes Glynn County's First Baby of the Year

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Jan. 1, 2010 – Jason and Connie Wood of Brunswick welcome the newest addition to their family, Abigail Grace. She arrived on New Year’s Day at 8:32 a.m. in the Southeast Georgia Health System’s Miriam & Hugh Nunnally Maternity Care Center in Brunswick as Glynn County’s first baby of 2010. She was delivered by Matthew Johnston, MD, and weighed in at 4 lbs., 15 oz., and measured 18 inches long. She is the couple’s second child and joins big sister Asheleigh, who is nine years old. “Abigail was a wonderful New Year’s Day surprise because she wasn’t due until January 18,” said Connie Wood.

Each year, more than 1,500 babies are born at the Miriam & Hugh Nunnally Maternity Care Center. To further expand services and meet the needs of these little ones and their families, the Center is currently undergoing major renovation and expansion. The entire project is set for completion by the end of August 2010. When finished, the Center will have 6,550 feet of additional space and feature 24 redesigned labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum rooms (LDRPs) with the latest technologies that will allow mothers and their babies to remain in the same hospital room throughout their stay.

To welcome little Abigail, the Health System presented the happy parents with a large gift basket full of goodies and baby care necessities from the Brunswick Campus Gift Shop. Pictured from left are: Gail Hanson, RN, Connie and Abigail Wood, and Mary Greene, RN.
