Houston, February 5, 2017 —The Woman’s Hospital of Texas is celebrating Super Sunday in Houston by giving every baby born at the hospital on February 5, 2017 a custom-made “Champions Born Here Daily” bodysuit.
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas campus is just a few blocks from NRG Park, host of the 51st National Football League Championship Game.
“We’re proud to have this historic event happening in our neighborhood and we’re sharing our excitement by giving each baby born at our hospital on Super Sunday a very special welcome with our keepsake ‘Champions Born Here Daily’ onesie,” said Ashley McClellan, CEO of The Woman’s Hospital of Texas.
“All babies have unlimited potential to be a champion at whatever they choose to do in life,” McClellan said. “For more than 40 years, our board-certified physicians and experienced nurses have given all of those future champions the best start in life possible.”
The Hurtado family was one of the first families to receive the surprise gift on Sunday.
“I wasn’t expecting to get a Super Bowl onesie,” said Dorothy Charles Hurtado, who delivered her third daughter at Woman’s under the care of Kathy Summers, M.D. “I’m going to put it in a picture frame so she’ll always remember that she was a Super Bowl baby.”
Baby Madeline weighed 6 lbs. and 7 oz. when she arrived into the world at 9:19 a.m. on Sunday.
About The Woman's Hospital of Texas
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas opened in 1976 and is celebrating its 40th year as the state’s premier facility dedicated to the health and well-being of women and newborns. Our founders chose to name the hospital “Woman’s” – not “Women’s” – as a way to honor each patient as an individual and as a daily reminder that the care we give is always personalized and patient focused. Our attention to every detail of the patient experience makes us the top choice for women throughout the greater Houston area and beyond. Our physicians and nurses delivered more than 11,000 babies in 2015 – more than any other hospital in the State of Texas. And with the recent addition of our Pediatric Center, our hospital now offers its high-quality care to children and teenagers. Located near the Texas Medical Center in the heart of Houston, The Woman’s Hospital of Texas has 397 licensed beds, including a 124-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). With more than 650 board-certified physicians, The Woman’s Hospital of Texas offers expertise and outstanding care in breast health, imaging, gynecology, obstetrics, high-risk pregnancy, neonatology and minimally-invasive surgery.
In our “40 Years of Caring,” we’ve consistently raised the standards for women’s healthcare in Houston and the State of Texas. We were the first hospital in Houston to earn the Baby-Friendly Hospital distinction from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nation’s Children Fund (UNICEF.) We also were the first hospital in Texas to be named a National Association for Continence Center of Excellence for Continence Care in Women – one of only six in the nation. The Woman’s Hospital of Texas is accredited by The Joint Commission and recognized by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology.
