End of an Era: CPMC Celebrates the Last Baby Born at California Campus
SAN FRANCISCO – History has been made. The last baby born at Sutter’s California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) California Campus hospital was welcomed into the world at 2:44 a.m. on Sunday, March 3. Born to Yan Yun Liang and Sam Lin, of San Francisco, baby Abraham is the last in a long line of babies to be delivered at the historic California Campus hospital.
The family arrived at the hospital on Saturday and baby Abraham made his debut just hours before the staff and physicians started to move to the new CPMC Van Ness Campus hospital, which will replace the California Campus.
“We delivered 150,743 babies at the California Campus between 1986 and 2018,” said Terri Slagle, M.D., neonatologist with Sutter’s CPMC. That is only a portion of the little bundles of joy that have been born here as the obstetric services date back to 1875.
Abraham was delivered by Cindy Grijalva, M.D. and entered the world at a healthy 6 lbs. and 14 oz.
