The hospital has been helping families celebrate New Years babies for more than 20 years. Various businesses throughout the city donate gifts and even our own Mayor Michael Brown delivered the child.

Briana Hamilton, Mother said, "I was supposed to be induced on Friday so I was thinking I would have her on the 3rd, definitely not today."

Altru delivered 1,648 babies in the year of 2013. That doesn't beat 2012's record breaking year of 1,655. To start off the new year, 2 babies were born Tuesday morning and there are 2 more expected to be delivered by the end of the day.
