Westfields welcomes the first baby of the New Year

Posted on:

Westfields Hospital & Clinic welcomed the first baby born in New Richmond in 2020.

Ava Hope Wiley was born to Houlton parents Alissa and Stephen Wiley, just 25 minutes after they arrived at Westfields on New Year’s Day!

Ava weighed 7 pounds, 10 ounces and measured 21 inches. She was joined at Westfields by big sisters Aaralyn, 10 and Autumn, six.

Alissa and Stephen said, “The nurses and doctors at Westfields are amazing. Our nurse, Ashley, and the rest of the staff were superb!”

The family was presented with a basket, which included gifts from Westfields Hospital & Clinic Gift Shop, $25 Chamber dollars from the New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce, a quilt from the “Quilts for Kids & Families” group from New Richmond and a book from the Family Resource Center.
