The first baby to be born at Jennie Stuart Medical Center in 2012 was born to a first-time mother.
Jennie Stuart spokesman Jim Goss says Barrett Carter Rios came into the world just after 6am this morning weighing seven pounds and two ounces and measured at 19 and a half inches.
Barrett is the first child for mother Olivia Rios of Hopkinsville and Goss says mother and child are doing well. Doctor Jerry Hart delivered the year’s first baby.
Goss says the hospital is presenting the mother with flowers and will give the baby a 100 dollar gift card.
