First Newborn of 2016 Arrives at Tug Valley ARH


Tug Valley ARH Regional Medical Center welcomed its first baby of the new year born on January 6, 2016.

At 7:59 a.m., Richard Enchill, MD, delivered Darcie Ann Bevins.   She weighed 7 pounds and 3 ounces, and was 20 inches long. Parents are Tiara Francis and Andrew Bevins, and they reside in Kermit, Wva.

When asked why she chose the name Darcie Ann, Tiara said: "I named her Darcie because I have loved the name since I heard it on a TV show. I named her Ann because of a family tradition on the father side to name one girl in each family Ann after his grandmother.” 

As the first baby born at Tug Valley ARH Regional Medical Center in 2016, the hospital gave Darcie Ann and her family a car seat, diaper bag and a large, baby bathtub full of items every baby needs including a baby monitor.

Tug Valley ARH Regional Medical Center offers private labor-delivery-recovery rooms with private baths in a home-like atmosphere where the focus is on a family-centered birthing experience. Once the baby is born, the hospital offers rooming in for parents and baby to enhance newborn teaching with a newborn nursery nurse available and dedicated to this service 24 hours a day.

OB-GYN physician Dr. Richard Enchill and OB nursing staff provide individualized care for moms and babies.

Tug Valley ARH Regional Medical Center also offers a comfortable nursery with a state-of-the-art security system.

“Location, comfort and hospitality supported by a team of highly experienced physicians and nurses are important when selecting an environment to give birth,” said Treana Pack, OB Nurse Manager at Tug Valley ARH Regional Medical Center.
