baby new yearValley View presents the family with a number of gifts provided by the hospital, physicians and area businesses.  Of the five hospitals in the Tri-State area, four have labor and delivery units, so there is no way of knowing which hospital will have the first in Mohave County or the first in the Laughlin/Bullhead/Ft. Mohave/Needles area.  Valley View stopped the practice several years ago of allowing mothers and their physicians to induce delivery late New Year’s Eve or early New Year’s morning to improve the chances of being the first; they cannot speak for other hospitals that allow that same practice.  VVMC patients are scheduled for a New Year’s delivery; based upon the past, there is a good chance of a walk-in patient who has gone into labor.
