Aultman Orrville Welcomes its First Baby in 2014

by User Not Found | Jan 29, 2014
Each New Year, Aultman Orrville Hospital staff is excited to welcome its first baby of the year. Aultman Orrville said hello to its first 2014 baby on Thursday, Jan. 2 – although, it was sooner than the parents expected.


Levi Samuel Jones, born at 7 pounds, 11 ounces, was the ever-so-timely baby delivered at 4:41 p.m. Levi’s parents, Jonathan and Jamie Jones, and 3-year-old sister Ellie, from Ashland, were all thrilled to welcome a healthy baby. Big sister Ellie made her brother a card of stickers as a birthday present.

Levi wasted no time coming into the world. His mother Jamie had a doctor’s appointment at 11 a.m. that morning. It was estimated that she would have the baby within 24 to 48 hours – Levi was born just six hours later.

When Jamie went into labor, Jonathan was working an hour away. When he received the news, he immediately began traveling to the hospital. Due to winter weather and poor road conditions, the usual one-hour drive took Jonathan two and a half stressful hours. Luckily, Jonathan made it to Aultman Orrville one hour before Levi was born.

According to the Jones family, the Aultman Orrville Birth Center provided a great balance of high-quality care and a comfortable atmosphere.

“Our experience here was wonderful, and the staff gave us exactly what we needed,” said Jonathan. “We compared birth centers online, and I know we made the right choice for Levi’s delivery.”

The Aultman Orrville Birth Center has provided obstetric services for more than 60 years. Recently, the birth center received the David Hendershot Rural Health Promotion Award, which recognizes small, rural hospitals that demonstrate a commitment to promoting a healthy community.
