It was a very special New Years for Orlando Health as we welcomed in the first babies of 2013 born at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies and Health Central Hospital.

It was a celebration for Angela and Andrew Hull of Maitland who gave birth to their first child Ava Scarlett at 2:22am at Winnie Palmer Hospital. This made Ava the first baby born in the City of Orlando in 2013. Little Ava weighed in at 5lbs 15oz and measured 19 ½ inches long. The Hull family actually showed up at the hospital just before the ball dropped in Times Square and delivered little Ava within four hours making her the first baby of the more than 14-thousand babies we expect will be born at Winnie Palmer Hospital this year.

It was also a special New Years for the St. Vil family of Orlando. Their little girl Malia Anne was the first baby born at Health Central Hospital in 2013, entering the world at 1:37am weighing in at 6lbs. 15.5oz and measuring 19 1/2 inches long. Little Malia, who wasn't due until January 9, was an early surprise for her family, mom Marie, dad Lexidor and big brother Chris.
