SGCMH welcomes First Baby of 2022

STE. GENEVIEVE – It’s a boy! Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital (SGCMH) is pleased to announce its first baby born for the New Year. Wyatt Klein was delivered at 1:12 am on January 10, 2022 by Dr. Tony Lam. He is one of Southeast Missouri’s newest citizens and his family was awarded the “First Baby of the Year” promotion sponsored by SGCMH and local area businesses.

Baby Wyatt was born weighing 7 lbs., 14 ounces. The parents, Angie Schwartz and Grant Klein were beyond thrilled about their new baby boy being the first of the new year at the hospital. It was a nice surprise for the family.

“The process went so smoothly and the excitement continued after learning we won the New Year Baby promotion,” said mom Angie. “We’re overjoyed with all the love and special care.”

Dad mentioned it had been a delightful time and looks forward to going home to see how baby Wyatt is greeted by his brother, four year old Hunter. Hunter briefly visited baby Wyatt and showed him lots of love. Both children were born at Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital.

The family was so appreciative of the care from the hospital staff and felt a special connection since mom, Angie and two grandparents, Fred and Karen Schwartz all work at the hospital.
