Parry Sound couple welcomes New Year’s Baby at OSMH


The first baby of the New Year born at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) arrived at 2:03 am.

Hailee Rose Hall tipped the scale at five pounds, three ounces, and is the daughter to Melissa Jackson and Garry Hall of Parry Sound.  Hailee has two siblings, sister Starr-Lynn, and brother Cleeo.

“I wasn’t expecting to have the New Year’s baby,” said mother Melissa, who said Hailee arrived approximately 2 weeks ahead of schedule.  She was referred to Orillia following an ultrasound in Parry Sound.

Mother and daughter are resting comfortably.

Approximately 900 babies are born at OSMH each year.
