WHEATLAND – The stork was busy this May in Wheatland. Doctors at Platte County Memorial Hospital delivered 14 babies during the month, which is a record-breaking month for deliveries at the hospital.
Hospital staff researched as far back as September 1999 and couldn’t find any record where 14 births occurred in the same month. The closest was March 2001 when they delivered 13 babies.
For perspective, PCMH delivered six babies in April and four babies in January, February and March of this year.
Candy Anderson, financial analyst at PCMH, said the hospital had been quite busy in May in addition to the number of babies. “It was a good extension on the part of all the hospital employees to care for everyone.”
