Alton Memorial’s First Newborn Returns

Billy Welch almost came full circle recently during a short-term stay at Alton Memorial Rehabilitation & Therapy. The former Eunice Smith Home is less than a mile from Alton Memorial Hospital, where on Nov. 15, 1937, Billy was the very first baby born at the hospital, delivered by Dr. D.M. Roberts and weighing in at 9 pounds, 8 ounces. That was the same day the hospital opened to welcome its first patients.

Remembering Randy

Alton Memorial Hospital was saddened to hear the news of the passing in late February of Randy Staton, a beloved member of the Housekeeping team for 42 years. AMH employees and retirees donated $863 to Alton Memorial Health Services Foundation recently in memory of Randy. The Foundation purchased a plaque that now hangs next to the directory sign near the café entrance.
