Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on January 14th, 2014

Lytle 79Swedish Health Services have started 2014 with a bang celebrating a record 9,014 babies delivered across their four hospitals last year. Here in Ballard, Swedish reached a record of over 1,000 deliveries in one year for the first time ever.

With the combined 9,014 deliveries Swedish have set a record for the hospital system and also have seen an increase of 3 percent in deliveries over 2012.

“We take great pride in providing Western Washington families with the very best convenience and care for their pregnancies and newborns,” said Jane Uhlir, M.D., executive director of the Women & Infants program at Swedish. “We share in the joy these families experienced last year and look forward to a lifetime of health and wellbeing for these children.”

Swedish in First Hill welcomed Seattle’s first baby of 2014 when Killian Powell was born at 12:51 a.m. on Jan. 1 to parents Niamh O’Connell and Wyatt Powell.
