According to William Shakespeare (from “Othello”), “Good name in man and woman is the immediate jewel of their souls." Some names are family names, while others are uniquely named to stand out.  Regardless, a name says something about us. 

Below are the top baby boy and baby girl names for deliveries at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese in 2022. They are:

  • Boys: Wyatt
  • Girls: Ava

These names were part of the 549 babies that were delivered by HSHS St. Joseph’s Women and Infants Center in 2022. 

St. Joseph’s Women and Infants Center provides quality care to pregnant women and their families throughout the birthing process. The hospital also has a partnership to offer immediate, real-time ultrasounds and consultations with neonatologists at pediatric hospitals through telemedicine technology, as well as 24-hour consultation service with expert perinatologists. The Women and Infants Center also has a Level II nursery staffed with neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) and specially trained nurses to care for babies born with special health care needs.

For those expecting in 2023, St. Joseph’s offers a wide range of services for mothers and infants, and the prenatal class schedule is available here. For more information about the Women and Infants Center at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese, visit here.
