When BJU was founded in 1997, it was a small operation offering modest ER, pediatric, Family Medicine, and delivery services. The first babies born in the hospital were brought into this world in 1998 by a new team of doctors, nurses, and midwives. Together, this team provided families with a safe, clean, and friendly environment in which to welcome their new family member. An 18th birthday party for these first babies was held in 2016. This year, we continued the tradition for the third time
