First Baby of 2020 Noelle

Early every January, the first births help welcome the new year. But when Noelle Marie Evenson was born the evening of Jan. 1, she helped usher in a little extra. The daughter of Alissa Snook and Joel Evenson of Hector was the first baby of the 2020 decade born in Hutchinson. The young girl born at 9:48 p.m. weighed in at 6 pounds and 12 ounces and was 20.5 inches tall. "She's healthy. She's so good," Alissa said as she held her daughter this past Friday morning in a quiet suite of Hutchinson Health's BirthCare Center. Noelle's name was picked from a list compiled to reflect the winter season. "It was the prettiest one to me," Alissa said. "And it was one we could agree on." Noelle's birth was not without its challenges. "She had a rough pregnancy," Joel said. "I was very sick," Alissa said. "And as far as delivery it went ... Continue Reading

Why Vaccinate? It’s Important #1

“I trained in pediatrics in the mid 1980’s. I spent many days and nights caring for children critically ill with Hib (Hemophilus influenzae type b) disease. Some did not make it, and survivors often had major permanent disabilities. The first Hib vaccine came out in 1986 and it was excitedly welcomed. The last case of Hib meningitis I saw in the US was an unimmunized child in 1994. I hope I never see Hib again—but a resurgence is likely if our vaccination rates continue to fall.”~ Dr. Leah Willson, pediatrician ... Continue Reading

Early Detection is the Best Way to Fight Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to equip people with the information and resources they need to spread awareness within their own family and circle of friends. It’s a time dedicated toward helping people understand how prominent breast cancer is and what can be done to help prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease. What can we, as a community, do to fight breast cancer and bring more awareness to the cause? In 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
