First Baby of 2018
Piedmont Mountainside Hospital welcomes Cassandra Harper as the first baby born in 2018. She was born on January 1, 2018, weighing 7 lb 14 oz and 19 inches long, to parents Alysha Burch and David Harper of Ellijay.
Piedmont Mountainside Auxiliary presented gifts to the family from the hospital gift shop. Auxiliary members chose wisely since one gift, a stain-glass fairy, matches the theme of Cassandra's room.
