Trinity Health set records in nearly every department in 2013, including its Family Birth Center. Some 1,629 births were recorded in 2013, which represents a modern-day record.

“We had 1,523 births the previous year, so that means 100 more babies were delivered last year than in 2012,” says Sevda Raghib, Director of Women's and Children's Services. “This consistently busy pace has been the new normal as the city continues to grow.”

Trinity also saw growth in its NICU as other growing communities referred more babies in need of intensive care. Raghib says an expansion of Trinity's birth center completed in 2012 helped ease the higher volume somewhat. SPACE index.php
