Silver Cross Celebrates First Baby Born in 2013
Joliet, IL (January 3, 2013)—Joliet residents and proud parents Michelle Greaney and Joshua Dosek received an early New Year’s present --a new baby boy. With help from Michel Borders, M.D., obstetrician/gynecologist, baby Logan was born on Jan 1, 2013 at 5:25 a.m. weighing 6 pounds 9 ounces and measuring 19 inches. Not that this wasn't exciting enough, but little Logan was the first baby born at Silver Cross Hospital in 2013. To celebrate, the Silver Cross Birthing Center staff filled a gift basket with a free baby photography CD and an array of baby items from Babies-R-Us. In addition, the hospital's Childerguild Gift Shop gave baby Logan a large blue teddy bear. The Childerguild has supported women and children's services at Silver Cross for over 100 years.
