Births down slightly at Mitchell, SD, hospital

The Daily Republic, August 27, 2008
The first year of the new $3.2 million maternity ward at Mitchell, SD-based Avera Queen of Peace Hospital brought more amenities for patients, but the hospital actually saw a drop in the number of babies born during the fiscal year that spanned 2007 and 2008. The reason is the retirement of a doctor who has yet to be replaced, said hospital officials.
