SAN FRANCISCO—Little 8-pound, 2-ounce Francis Peterson was wheeled over from St. Luke’s hospital on Saturday, Aug. 25, to applause as he and his mom Kaitlynn Peterson became the first patients at the new Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center Mission Bernal Campus Hospital. Francis was the last baby born at CPMC St. Luke’s Campus, which officially opened its doors in 1871.
The next day, at 12:00:24 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 26, baby Isabella arrived to the delight of parents Alejandra Garrajal and Santos Iraheta. At 7 pounds, 1.4 ounces and 20 inches in length—this girl makes history as the first baby born at the hospital.
These babies and families—as well as all others on the maternity unit at the Mission Bernal Campus Hospital— enjoy private rooms, with beautiful views of the city, while receiving specialized attention in a spacious environment from caring clinical teams.
