Thursday, January 03, 2019 - Lakeview Hospital welcomes its first baby of the New Year

The first baby of 2019 born at Lakeview Hospital arrived at 2:57 p.m. on January 1, 2019. Max LaVarre Thompson made his New Year’s Day debut – two days early – weighing 9 pounds, 3 ounces.

Joe and Natalie Thompson, from Shoreview, Minnesota, are Max’s proud parents. Their daughter, Ava Lou, 3, was also born at Lakeview.

“We have received phenomenal care while here, from everyone we have encountered,” said Joe and Natalie. “We had our first child here and came back due to the excellent care we received.”

Nurses presented the family with a basket of goodies in celebration of being the first newborn of the New Year.

Congratulations to the Thompson family from everyone at Lakeview Hospital!
