When the Morton’s learned that their unborn baby girl, Tessa, had
a life threatening condition, they were glad they chose the right hospital.
At week 29, the baby's heart rate became too erratic and an emergency
c-section was necessary. Weighing only 1 pound, 3 ounces, Tessa was tiny,
but tough. Our expert neonatal team began their miracle work. After 87
days of intensive treatment, blood transfusions, an operation, and lots
of TLC, Tessa went home to her family. Now she's a healthy and happy
baby. While our Women's and Children's Center has earned recognition
for excellence, our true reward is helping patients like Tessa beat the odds.
