Bellevue Medical Center is proud to announce the birth of its’ first baby girl, born Tuesday, May 18th, 2010 at 3:02 p.m. to Adam and Michaela Tobias.
Bellevue Medical Center’s Maternity Services staff members were all ecstatic to welcome their first newborn: 6 pound, 6 ounce Haedyn Tobias. They presented Haedyn and her family with gifts from local contributors, including a home-made baby diaper wreath from Jodi Gary, a Surgical Technologist at Bellevue Medical Center.
The Maternity Services staff did an excellent job of supporting Dr. Brian Finley in delivering their first baby on only the second day of operation after the hospital’s opening on Monday, May 17. Mother, Michaela Tobias, said, “I love it here; I love the people here; they helped out a lot and I wouldn't want it any other way,” when speaking with several media representatives who came on Wednesday to see Bellevue’s newest resident.
One of the most important ways in which the city of Bellevue has welcomed the first baby at their brand new community hospital is through an educational scholarship to the college or university of her choice. Funded by Bellevue University and Bellevue Medical Center, Matthew Davis, Vice President for Bellevue University, presented Haedyn with a $7,500 scholarship yesterday, May 18th. Davis told the beaming parents, “What we’re going to do is put the funds in the education account and let it grow over the next 19 years, and by the time she graduates from high school, she should have a full scholarship”.
Father Adam Tobias, who’s currently stationed at Offutt Air Force Base, was overjoyed with the scholarship – “It's great; we couldn't ask for anything more; it's surprising".
We will all be looking forward to see Haedyn grow and develop as a young woman over the next several years, and we feel honored and proud to recognize her as our first baby at Bellevue Medical Center. Congratulations to the Tobias family and the Maternity Services staff at Bellevue Medical Center!
