Five babies. Five doctors. One hospital. One grandma.

So many babies in so little time.

Cheryl Kooiker, a Nurse Aide serving in our hospital and surgery center for over 12 years, celebrated the birth of FIVE grandbabies between April 2023 and January 2024. They were all born at Orange City Area Health System, and all were delivered by a different physician on our birthcare/family medicine team.

How cool is that?
