PEARLAND, TEXAS (April 06, 2016)

Memorial Hermann Pearland first baby Cash groupWith his first breath, Cash Joseph Lee makes history becoming the first baby born at Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital. Memorial Hermann’s newest hospital opened March 29.

Cash weighed six pounds, three ounces and arrived at 2:20 p.m. on April 4 to proud parents Sarah Wilson and Coby Lee of Pearland.

“My original due date was April 15 and I had hoped I would be able to deliver in the new hospital,” says Sarah Wilson. “Most of our extended family lives in Manvel and Alvin so it was super easy for all of them to get here; it’s been a wonderful experience.”

Dr. Michael Hunter, DO, is credited with delivering the first baby at Memorial Hermann Pearland. “I think it’s pretty exciting for mom and dad to know their baby is the first baby to be born in the new hospital,” says Dr. Hunter. “The staff did a great job taking care of them.”

Memorial Hermann Pearland offers six private suites for labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum (LDRP). The LDRP suites allow the mother and her newborn to remain in the same suite throughout their stay. Memorial Hermann Pearland also offers expectant mothers in-house OB/GYN services 24 hours a day, seven days a week as well as neonatology services.
