GANDER, NL — Central Health had much to celebrate in kicking off the New Year.
James Patton Memorial Hospital in Gander saw the delivery of two healthy boys on Jan. 1.
Wilson Bailey Brinson had a little bit of travelling to get here, as obstetrics had been temporarily rerouted from Grand Falls-Windsor to Gander.
The Brinson family travelled from Sandy Point, where he was born a healthy seven pounds at 7:26 p.m.
Just 11 minutes later, Matthew and Chantelle Oldford welcomed Grayson Oldford into the world. He was born a healthy six pounds and 14 ounces.
Because the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association donates an infant car seat to the first babies born in 2018 at the 10 NL hospitals that preform routine deliveries, both Bailey – for the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre – and Grayson – for James Paton Memorial Hospital – received a car seat.
