Why is all news negative? Well it’s not – some news is “feel-good”. With the new year, it’s a chance to start with some good news – in this case, for one happy couple and the Northumberland Hills Hospital (NHH). Some Hospitals have a tradition (including NHH) to announce the first baby of the new year and for 2023, it’s Hazel Mae, born to Angela and Bruno Gelao of Port Hope – well actually to Angela but father Bruno gets some of the credit (see photo below). The Hospital’s announcement said: Hazel “weighed 6 pounds and 11.2 ounces (3,035 grams) at birth. Hazel, who carries her maternal grandmother’s name as her middle name, is warmly welcomed by older sister Nevaeh and older brother Luca and an extended family eager to meet her.”
You can get more details about Angela, who has a long connection with NHH, at the press release here.
No doubt Angela and Bruno will be asked to complete the new survey that the Hospital has initiated – instead of a mailed paper survey, they will be asked like all patients and caregivers to use their cellphone to provide “feedback pertaining to the quality of care and experience received”. If you don’t have a cellphone or tablet, an iPad will be made available by NHH. (Also, hard-copy surveys will be provided in key waiting areas). There are more details on this at the NHH web site here.
