ISH marks 400th delivery of 2019

Koyer Huntley

CLARION – Iowa Specialty Hospital’s 400th baby of 2019, Koyer Huntley, was born on Dec. 6 at 7:29 a.m. to parents Olivia and Nate Huntley.

Baby Koyer weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce, was 21.5 inches in length, and has brown hair and blue eyes. He will join sibling, Kyrie, at home.

“It amazes me that we have reached 400 babies,” said Casey Howell, OB Leader. “In 2018, there were 385 babies born at our facility, which is the most ever delivered in one year. Now we’ve surpassed that number and the year isn’t over yet.”

“Many years ago I put this process in place to expand OB services in hopes of reaching 300 deliveries. My prediction and early goals have been too low,” said Dr. Dan Gabrielson. “We have now delivered 400 babies in a year which is remarkable. Thank you to Iowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics and its staff for supporting this major milestone. But most of all, thanks to all our extraordinary moms and families who have trusted Gabrielson Clinic for Women and Iowa Specialty Hospitals with their most precious gifts.”
