Patient Stories

“Three Special Deliveries At One Special Hospital!”

Meet five-year-old Wrigley (left), two-year-old Wriver (right) and baby boy Wren, born January 7.
They’re the children of Tanya and Wyatt Wirtz, and they all got off to a healthy start at Palo Alto County Health System (PACHS).

Tanya chose a PACHS OB provider for all three deliveries. “I’d heard so many good things about the OB providers at Palo Alto County Health System. What I really liked is that they always put the patient first.”

During all three of her deliveries, Tanya never had one complaint. “All of the nurses went above and beyond the call of duty,” says Tanya. “They were so personable and always had a great bedside manner.”

They were also very comforting. “Wren was a long delivery, and I remember getting nervous,” Tanya says. “But the staff reminded me that all deliveries are different, and that made me feel like everything was going to be okay. Then, after Wren was born, I wanted to take some fun pictures of my baby. The next day, one of the nurses brought in some cute stickers to use! To me, the fact that she was thinking about our family after she’d left work was something really special!”
