A birthday to remember!


March 3, 2020

Amery, Wis. - Leap Day birthdays run in the family for one new arrival at the Amery Hospital & Clinic Birth Center.

Baby boy Zander made his debut on February 29 – and proud parents Katie Mattocks and Zack Walton shared that Zander’s great-grandfather was a Leap Day baby, too!

Baby Zander arrived at 10:04, weighing 7 pounds 13 ounces and measuring 20.5 inches.

In another connection with his great-grandparents, Zander was named after his great-grandmother on Katie’s side, whose maiden name was Zander.

Katie and Zack said of their care, “Everyone was so kind and wonderful with us. Thank you for a great experience.”

Congratulations to the family from all of us here at Amery Hospital & Clinic!
