Jan. 2, 2017 – West Bend, WI – I’ve been making calls to Froedert St. Joes since Sunday and still no Baby New Year for Washington County … unless the parents are from this area and went elsewhere.
I asked the charge nurse at St. Joes if there were any babies on tap and she said, “It’s not like I have a crystal ball Judy.”
Hartford Hospital doesn’t birth babies anymore.
Remember when St. Joseph’s Hospital was in West Bend on Silverbrook Drive and Oak Street. I think a number of readers would remember that maternity ward.
There was a great statue of St. Joseph above the entryway door and then a gorgeous stained glass window and nuns were nurses and they were scurrying all about.
