Swedish/Issaquah welcomed the first baby born at the hospital in 2013 at 3:33 a.m. Jan. 1.

Luz Maria and Enrique Mazariegos, first-time parents and Issaquah residents, welcomed a baby boy, Adrien.

Adrien weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce, and measured 20.5 inches. Dr. Maria Holmes, obstetrician-gynecologist at Issaquah Women’s Clinic, served as the delivering physician.

The Shops at Swedish and the Starbucks in the Swedish/Issaquah lobby donated a newborn gift basket to the Mazariegos family.

The hospital’s Childbirth Center delivered 960 babies last year.

Swedish/Issaquah opened in July 2011 and started offering in-patient services in November 2011.

The state-of-the-art childbirth center is a key feature at the hospital. The unit includes eight labor-delivery-recovery suites and a 31-bed postpartum unit.

Less than 25 hours after the hospital opened a childbirth center and 80 patient beds, Swedish/Issaquah greeted the inaugural baby born at the facility, 8-pound, 20-inch Liliana Yozelin.

Holmes also delivered the first baby born at the hospital.
