Baby Harvey, Nurses: Anissa Mitchell, Cici Alicaway, Irene Barrios, Marie Elena Bird

Corpus Christi, Texas, August 26, 2017 – Baby Harvey Rodriguez arrived safe and sound last night at Corpus Christi Medical Center Doctors Regional as his namesake hurricane barreled down on the Gulf Coast. Weighing in at 7 lbs., 18 ¼ inches long, at 7:55 p.m., baby Harvey was delivered by Dr. Leighann Glazener and Dr. Romulo Corrada as the eye of the storm made landfall just north of Corpus Christi.

Mother Irma Rodriguez had not selected a name for the baby before she went into labor.

When one of the hospital nurses suggested the name Harvey, the mom agreed it was perfect.

“It was exciting delivering my baby during the hurricane. We are thankful for the care we received at Doctors Regional and for the good health of our family,” said Ms. Rodriguez.

“Patient care is our highest priority, even during a Category 4 hurricane. We are blessed with outstanding nurses, physicians and staff to serve the community,” said Jay Woodall, Corpus Christi Medical Center Chief Executive Officer.

Corpus Christi Medical Center Doctors Regional is successfully weathering Hurricane Harvey.

We are now treating new emergency center patients at Corpus Christi Medical Center Doctors Regional. At this time, EMS and patients are beginning to access our Emergency Center services at Corpus Christi Medical Center Doctors Regional at a steady pace.
