Parkridge hospital welcomes first baby

COLUMBIA (WACH) - The new Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge hospital has officially been Christened with the birth of its first baby.

Asher Thompson was born at Parkridge on Friday, March 21st.

Mom and dad say the experience was wonderful and the care provided by the hospital was superb.

And they both think it will be a really wonderful thing for Asher to look back on and know he was the hospital's first baby.

"It's a neat thing. We'll always have a story to tell. It'll be something good for Asher to look back on and listen to everybody's stories of how it went." says Eric Thompson, Asher's proud daddy.
