New Babies Born Across the Atrium Health Enterprise in the New Year

Atrium Health rang in the New Year with multiple births across the system.

As many people across the Carolinas and Georgia were ringing in the new year with champagne toasts and noise makers, the sweet sound of precious life was filling maternity wards across many Atrium Health hospitals.

Our first baby of 2023 was born at Atrium Health Cleveland at 12:09 a.m. Parents Kelley and William Patterson are excited to welcome their first child, baby Chance, weighing 6 pounds 14 ounces.

A few hours later, at 2:30 a.m., Amanda and Clint Bishop welcomed baby boy Tyson, weighing 6 pounds 8 ounces, at Atrium Health Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

“We were very excited, we were not expecting a New Year’s Day birth,” said Amanda, as she held baby Tyson in her arms. “He’s making waves already, so we’ll see what the rest of his life is like.”
