Patient Stories

“Three Precious Babies, One Special Hospital.”

As you can see, Kaitlin and Crosby Krischel have a growing family. All three of their children— Graham, who is three, Jack, who turns two in October, and Evie, who was born June 1— were delivered at Palo Alto County Health System. And the Krischels wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Everyone at Palo Alto County Health System was so passionate about making sure I was comfortable,” Kaitlin says. “Many of the nurses are mothers themselves, so they really understood what I was going through. I remember one nurse in particular. Everything she said to me was so positive that she made me feel like the perfect mom. All of my friends who have had babies delivered there say they’ve never ever had a bad nurse. To me, that’s amazing.”

Kaitlin has had the same obstetrician for all three babies. “Before my first delivery, I had heard so many good things about my physician,” Kaitlin says. “I like her because she’s honest and direct as well as passionate and knowledgeable. You can tell she really cares about our family. I have a rare blood-clotting disorder, so it was so comforting to know that I was in good hands. I’d recommend Palo Alto County Health System to any expectant
mother. It really is a compassionate hospital!”
