Celebrating a First for AdventHealth Hendersonville

Brynlee Kay Puttick is the first baby for her parents Lauren Norris and Gage Puttick, the first grandbaby in her family and she is also the first baby girl born at AdventHealth Hendersonville, formerly Park Ridge Health. Brynlee’s parents say she arrived several days ahead of her due date in the early morning hours of January 3, 2019. That date happens to be her parents’ anniversary. It is also just one day after Park Ridge Health became AdventHealth Hendersonville in its brand transformation.

Mom, Lauren, says they were preparing for the doctors to induce her labor but Brynlee had other plans and decided to make her appearance even more quickly than expected. She says Brynlee is doing very well and they are so grateful that she is here and healthy. Brynlee’s father says he is thrilled to get to know his baby girl who already has him wrapped around her tiny little finger.

Brynlee and her family will receive a special gift basket including the first AdventHealth onesie to go to a baby born at The Baby Place at AdventHealth Hendersonville.

The Baby Place is nationally recognized for its labor and delivery experience and was named the Best Place to Have a Baby in the Hendersonville Times-News 2018 Best of Blue Ridge awards.

On January 2, 2019 one of the nation’s largest faith-based health systems, with 47 hospital campuses in nine states including Park Ridge Health in Hendersonville, North Carolina, officially became AdventHealth. The name change for the organization formally known as Adventist Health System is part of a systemwide brand transformation to become a more consumer-centric, connected and identifiable national system of care, enabling consumers to easily distinguish locations and services across its vast care network, which serves more than 5 million patients annually.
