In a county where babies are not routinely born, a set of premature twins were delivered at the new Middle Park Medical Center in Granby on Sunday.
Babies are rarely born in Grand County due to the population, the lack of neonatal facilities and a full-time OBGYN. The last baby born in the county was in spring of 2010, when paramedics delivered a baby in the ambulance on Highway 9 at mile marker 128 en-route to Summit County. According to Grand County EMS, about one baby per-year is born here, either in a medical facility, in an ambulance, or in one instance a few years ago, on the woman’s bathroom floor of the Winter Park McDonald’s.
