Minocqua medical center celebrates milestone
Marshfield Medical Center-Minocqua providers delivered the 100th baby since the hospital opened its doors this past summer.
Riley Mae was born at 9:06 a.m. Nov. 13, weighing 6 pounds 12 ounces and measuring 19 inches long. Riley is the fourth child born to her parents, Max Zimmerman and Josie Graefe of Lake Tomahawk, joining siblings Ella, Anna and Daniel.
The attending physician was Dr. Barbara Coulter-Smith and Riley’s pediatrician is Dr. Cynthia Henry. Nurses Lisa Walowinski, Sue Van Acker and Kassie Vassar assisted in the delivery. Pictured are Max and Josie holding their newborn daughter, Riley Mae.
Hospital staff presented a gift basket to the family as part of the celebration.
The hospital’s first baby was born on its opening day for patient care, June 15. The birthing center with private rooms for labor and delivery, and dedicated C-section room for planned or urgent deliveries, is one of the many highlights at the newly-constructed hospital.
