First Centennial Baby Born at Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown

Posted on: January 03, 2018

Soon after we rang in 2018, Methodist’s first Centennial baby was born. Proud daddy Alex shows off his new son, Jack, who arrived at 1:04 New Year’s Day morning at Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital. Jack weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces.

2018 kicks off Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare’s centennial celebration. We don't have records all the way back to 1918, but in the last 25 years over 150,000 babies gave been born at Methodist hospitals.

Methodist Hospital was founded in 1918. All of our new babies born on January 1 of our centennial year will be sporting special centennial onesies. The very first centennial baby born at Methodist Germantown, South, and Olive Branch will all receive a special gift basket.

Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare is the result of a dream of Mississippi farmer John Sherard to open a hospital that would provide high-quality care for everyone regardless of their ability to pay. He was committed to this mission after his minister received care in a charity ward at another Memphis hospital. To this day, we stay true to our founder as we continue to be a mission driven organization committed to providing high-quality care to everyone regardless of their ability to pay.
