Meriter Welcomes Madison's First 2018 Baby

First baby of 2018

UnityPoint Health – Meriter is proud to welcome Aria, the first baby born in Madison in 2018. She rang in the New Year at 1:01 a.m.

“As the busiest birthing center in Wisconsin, we were honored to deliver more than 4,000 babies in 2017,” said Carla Griffin, Director of Perinatal Services. “We are thrilled to celebrate Aria as the first member of our class of 2018.”

Meriter expects to deliver approximately 5,000 babies this year as we welcome members of Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin (GHC-SCW). To accommodate growth, Meriter recently added new ultrasound rooms, triage rooms, labor and delivery rooms, family suites and private NICU rooms so each family has a memorable experience in a state-of-the-art facility.
