First patient

The last baby born in the old Birthing Center at Mahaska Health Partnership was also the first patient admitted to the new patient care wing. Gunner Mykael, who was born Sept. 16, is shown in his mother, Alicia Walkers’, arms as his father, Matt O’Rourke, pushes them in a wheelchair to their new room. They are assisted by Birthing Center Nurses Arlene Vonk and Jodi Chipman.
