To put the lifespan of the hospital in perspective, here are side-by-side images of the first baby born in the hospital.
Ryson Wilson was born on October 4, 2011. Today, he is nine years old and in grade 4 at Central Elementary School in Guthrie. The natural born athlete is already 5 feet tall and weighs 115 pounds. As he looks forward to his tenth birthday, it reminds us that his life has only just begun, and like the hospital itself, we know that many great things are on the horizon and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
