First Baby in 2023 Welcomed by KCH

On January 1, 2023, Knox Community Hospital in Mount Vernon, OH welcomed the first baby of the New Year! At exactly 12:46 AM, Baby Nathaniel R. Sullivan was was born to proud parents Angel and Dominick Sullivan of Mansfield, Ohio.

Baby Nathaniel weighed in at 7 pounds and 6 ounces. Both Baby Nathaniel and Angel and Dominick Sullivan are also in good health.

The arrival of Baby Nathaniel marks the beginning of a new year and a new chapter for the family. We at Knox Community Hospital would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the family and wish them all the best in the future.

His mom, Angel, said, “We chose Nathaniel because we thought it was a strong name, but also because it means ‘God has given, or gift of God.’ ” In addition, she stated that Nathaniel is their “rainbow baby,” which means a healthy baby born to a family that has suffered the loss of a previous baby or child. Angel said “We’re extremely happy that God has blessed us with little Nathaniel.”

As the first baby of 2023, Baby Nathaniel will always hold a special place in our hearts and in the history of Knox Community Hospital. We are honored to have been a part of this special moment and look forward to welcoming many more babies in the year to come.
