In the early morning hours of Monday, July 14, Maple Grove Hospital welcomed its 15,000th baby born at the hospital.
A baby girl was born at 6:58 a.m. She was delivered near the entrance of Emergency Care Center with the medical support of Rebecca Cooper, RN, and a team of other hospital staff. Cooper was walking into work, where she works in the Family Birth Center.
Maple Grove Hospital opened in December 2009 not expecting to exceed delivery volumes over 15,000 until the year 2022.
“The attraction to Maple Grove Hospital has been extremely positive,” said Jennifer Krippner, Director of Physician Development, Guest & Public Relations. “We have more than 50 OB/GYN providers delivering babies, and parents choosing to come to Maple Grove Hospital from as far as Brainerd, Willmar and cities in Wisconsin. Our compassionate approach to how we deliver care and the calming environment we provide parents is attracting patients to choose to deliver at Maple Grove Hospital. The staff we have hired are exceeding patients’ expectations by listening and responding to their needs in a very individualized way, setting Maple Grove Hospital apart.”
In 2013, Maple Grove Hospital had the second highest delivery volume in the state.
At Maple Grove Hospital, staff works to inspire each other to give its patients and their families’ compassionate, remarkable care. Together, delivering health care as it ought to be is the hospital’s vision and helps it to consistently strive to provide the best quality of care in a safe, secure and healing environment.
