A new tradition welcomes newborns at an Overland Park hospital

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – A Kansas City-area hospital is starting a new tradition to honor parents and babies born at the hospital.

Visitors and patients at Overland Park Regional Medical Center will soon be able to hear “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” playing over the hospital’s overhead system.

The song marks the arrival of the baby in the hospital.

Overland Park Regional said the baby’s mother pushed a button to play a song while leaving the labor and delivery unit and moved to the postpartum room.

“…it’s an exciting time to announce a new birth – one designed to inspire a spirit of hope, optimism, encouragement and well-being for our patients, families and friends as well as our staff and visitors,” Overland Park Reginal Medical Center President and Chief Executive Matt Sogard, said.

According to Sogard, Overland Park Regional Medical Center staff have delivered nearly 2,500 babies so far this year.
