Jackson Hospital celebrates its 2024 New Year’s baby, Atlas James Fisher, son of Michael and Kaitlyn Fisher

Board certified OB/GYN, Dr. Orlando Muniz, FACOG, delivered 7lbs 9oz,  Atlas on January 1 at 4:27AM.

Jackson Hospital presented Atlas and his parents with a cartload of goodies.  A case of diapers, wipes, and a $100 Walmart Gift Card was provided by the hospital and a gracious community member gifted a beautiful handmade blanket as she does for every New Year’s baby born at Jackson Hospital.

Mom, Kaitlyn, is a RN with Jackson Hospital and has been with the Maternal Care Department for two years.   Kaitlyn remarked, “The birth of your first child is such a precious and special day that is cherished for a lifetime.  Sharing that day with coworkers that have become family was the biggest blessing I could’ve asked for.  I may be biased but we truly have the best team of nurses who go above and beyond and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else care for me and my new little family.  It was such a special feeling not only being among friends but to also deliver the first baby of the year!  God has truly blessed us!”

Melanie Sellers, RN, Jackson Hospital’s Director of Maternal Care says, “We are so proud to welcome Atlas James to our community and wish only the best for a bright future for him.”  OB/GYN physicians, Dr. Orlando Muniz and Dr. Toby Marshall,  along with Family Medicine Physician, Dr. Leisa Bailey of Bonifay, FL, deliver over 400 babies a year at Jackson Hospital.
