Americus -- The first newborn is successfully delivered at Sumter Regional Hospital's temporary headquarters. The happy birth took place early Sunday morning.

Doctors and nurses helped an Oglethorpe woman give birth to a baby boy inside one of the tents a little before seven. Both the approximately five pound baby and his mother are healthy, and were transported to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany after the delivery.

Workers say they were prepared to give birth, and it gave the staff a morale boost to successfully deliver the child.

"Mom and baby are both doing fine. It kind of helps us to know that we are ready and that we can continue to serve the community," said SRH Registered Nurse Janice Hempy.

The hospital is providing temporary immediate care at some inflatable buildings and tents on Mayo Street, across from the destroyed hospital.
