Thursday, March 17, 2011 - Sparrow Hospital welcomes 250,000th baby

Eaton Rapids family’s second child marks hospital milestone 

Lansing, Mich. – Isaac Lee Denison’s arrival Thursday morning was celebrated not only by his parents, but by the entire staff of Sparrow Hospital and people throughout mid-Michigan. That’s because Isaac is the 250,000th delivery in the hospital’s history, born just one day shy of Sparrow’s 115th anniversary.

Isaac is the second child of Lisa and Richard Denison of Eaton Rapids. Their first child, nine-year-old Joshua, was Sparrow’s 213,745th baby.  His new brother Isaac arrived at 2:44 a.m. on March 17. He weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces.  Clara Regal, M.D.  delivered Isaac, assisted by resident physician Susrap Song, M.D., and Sparrow’s outstanding nursing staff.

“Every baby at Sparrow is special, but Isaac’s milestone birth is extra special because it draws attention to Sparrow’s long history of providing the finest care for expectant mothers and their babies,” said Maude Guerin, M.D., chair of the Ob-Gyn Department.    

As Sparrow’s 250,000th baby, Isaac and his parents received a $2,500 U.S. Savings Bond in Isaac’s name.  Capital Area Safe Kids Coalition donated an infant car seat and Sparrow filled the car seat with comfort items and gifts for mom, dad and baby. The Sparrow Gift Shop contributed a Teddy Bear and the Sparrow Auxiliary supplied a specially embroidered flannel sleep sack for Isaac to go home in.

Sparrow is mid-Michigan’s most popular birthing center, delivering about 4,000 babies a year.
