My most memorable moment was when we moved into BWH from the Boston Lying-In Hospital on Feb. 18, 1981. I assisted Dr. Michael Green, chief resident at that time, with the very first baby born in the Tower.
Mom arrived in rapid labor and was quickly was taken directly into a Delivery Room, where all equipment was not yet in place. But that baby boy was not waiting, and that special miracle took place. All these years later, I am still in touch with this family. I continue to send him a birthday card each year. The family connected in person a few years back when their dad was on 5B in the Tower at the end of his journey in life. I had the honor of sitting with this beautiful family when their dad passed.
