Schuyler Hospital delivers their last baby

With Schuyler Hospital’s Obstetrics Unit, Stork’s Landing, officially closing on October 31, 2011, the Hospital staff has just delivered their last scheduled baby. Dominick James Spina was born October 27th, to Steven and Crystal Spina. Dominick is the couple’s fourth boy, weighing in at 7 lbs. 9 oz., and 20” long, with lots of dark brown hair. Dominick’s mom, Crystal, is Activities Aide in the Hospital’s Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility, and got her wish that her baby would arrive before Stork’s Landing closed. The couple’s other three boys were also born at Stork’s Landing. The Spinas recently gathered with the first baby to be born at Schuyler Hospital, when the facility opened its present location in 1972 – Amy DeRaiche, and her mom, Jean Swinnerton – both of whom work as nurses in Schuyler Hospital’s Surgical Department.
