Oh Baby! Population boom for Castlegar

Kootenay Boundary Regional Hsopital staff shine during record deliveries

From 6:47 p.m. August 7 to 9:53 p.m. August 8, Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital welcomed seven new babies into the world. In a maternity unit that averages five babies a week, delivering seven babies in 27 hours was definitely a new record. All babies (four girls and three boys) and moms were healthy and happy – a testament to the dedicated efforts of all the physicians, nurses and support staff who made sure everything went smoothly.

“It was an amazing couple of days and I can’t say enough about the work everyone at our hospital did to make sure each delivery went well,” says Trisha Thompson, KBRH Manager, Maternal Child Services & Inpatient Surgical Unit. “Families in the area are lucky to have such a great team supporting our maternity services.”
