Quintuplets Born at Local Hospital

Posted: Updated:

For the first time in Corpus Christi Medical Center - Bay Area history, the hospital delivered quintuplets. Cesar and Crystal Tamez welcomed five newborn babies into the world at 11:16 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. on May 25, 2013. Born at 27 weeks and 4 days, the quintuplets and their birth weight are Caleb Hunter, 2 lb. 6 oz., Aden Cesar, 2 lb. 3 oz., Bianca Hope, 1 lb.14 oz., Madeline Love, 1 lb. 8 oz., and Chloe Faith, 1lb. 5 oz.

The Tamez family resides in Edinburg, Texas and decided to deliver at Bay Area's premier Women Center because of the maternal fetal medicine physicians, neonatologists and obstetricians who specialize in the treatment and ongoing care of expectant mothers and their unborn babies, who may be at high risk for special health problems. "Delivering our first babies at Bay Area Hospital has been a true blessing," stated Cesar Tamez. "We are thankful for the outstanding care that is being provided by the physicians and nurses at the hospital."

"We are honored that the Tamez family and many residents of South Texas and the Coastal Bend have chosen us -year after year-to help welcome their children into the world and be part of their memories that will last a lifetime," said Jay Woodall, Chief Executive Officer at Corpus Christi Medical Center. "With over 50,000 babies born at our hospitals, this is a testament to the enduring trust the physicians and employees of Corpus Christi Medical Center have earned from families for close to 20 years."
