Augusta Health’s first baby of 2022 is Elliana Rae!
Elliana was born at 8:53 am this morning. She weighs 8 pounds, 11 ounces and is 22 inches long. Elliana’s first name was suggested by one of her grandfathers, and her middle name is in honor of her other grandfather. Parents Autumn and Andrew thought she might become the first baby of 2022 because she was due a week ago on Christmas Day—but instead was born to celebrate New Year’s Day with her new family. Elliana was delivered by Dr. Ami Keatts, and her nurses are Diane and Shelley. All are doing well and looking forward to an exciting year of ‘firsts’ in 2022!
