(Silver Spring, Maryland) – Question: What does it take to reach 100,000 deliveries in 12 years? Answer: It takes close to one baby being born every hour. The Holy Cross Hospital Maternity Center has now been home to 100,000 deliveries since the year 2000 and this important milestone was acknowledged today with an event celebrating the moms, the hospital staff and the community that made it all possible.
Kevin J. Sexton, president & CEO, thanked the hospital’s team of dedicated medical professionals and talked about the numerous renovations and investment in the maternity center that helped turn around a declining number of deliveries in the late 90’s. “Amazing things happened, because there was immigration and revitalization of the area around the hospital, we saw a change, the birthrate actually went up 26% which is 5 times as fast as the state as a whole.”
The crowd included about a dozen moms and their children who were delivered at Holy Cross Hospital since 2000. Sexton addressed them specifically about what 100,000 means in terms of community confidence in the hospital and its services. “It’s really not about a number, it’s about each family individually having the experience of a lifetime. This milestone reflects the confidence you have in us. We take that role very seriously.”
