Babies are born on a regular basis
at the Ann Schnormeier Center for Birthing Care at Knox Community
Hospital, but the first baby born in each new year is always an extra-
special moment. Nathaniel R. Sullivan was born at 12:46 am on January
1, to proud parents Angel and Dominick Sullivan of Mansfield, Ohio. Baby
Nathaniel weighed in at 7 pounds and 6 ounces.
His mom, Angel, said, “We chose Nathaniel because we thought it was a
strong name, but also because it means ‘God has given, or gift of God.’ ”
In addition, she stated that Nathaniel is their “rainbow baby,” which
means a healthy baby born to a family that has suffered the loss of a
previous baby or child. Angel said “We’re extremely happy that God has
blessed us with little Nathaniel.”
The Ann Schnormeier Center for Birthing Care opened in early 2020 as
part of the new Wright Family Medical Pavilion at KCH in Mount Vernon.
On average, more than 500 babies are delivered at the facility each year. For more information go to Ann Schnormeier Center for Birthing Care | Knox Community Hospital (kch.org)
