First Baby Born at New VCU Community Memorial Hospital

South Hill, VA – At 11:50 p.m. on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, Lane Joseph Newton became the first baby delivered inside the new Garland Birthing Center at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital.

Lane weighed in at eight pounds and eleven ounces.  Lane is the second son of Rebecca and Brian Newton of Bracey, VA. 

When asked about her delivery inside the new Garland Birthing Center, Mrs. Newton stated that Dr. Austin and the nursing staff was fantastic and her entire experience has been wonderful.  She thought the facility and the accommodations were top-notch.  She also liked the fact that her, her son and husband were able to stay in the same room throughout their whole experience.

Mrs. Newton said when she found out her due date was so close to the opening of the Garland Birthing Center (Nov. 20th) that she wouldn’t make it; she would deliver before then, since this was her second child. She was pleasantly surprised that Lane was the first born at the new hospital.  She was also excited about not having to drive to Petersburg, as they had before with their first son.

Even though Mrs. Newton said that two kids were all she wanted, when asked would she deliver at VCU Health CMH again, she said with no hesitation, “For sure, no doubt.”
