June 20, 2022 – Several Southeast Florida dads celebrated Father’s Day the best way possible – by welcoming precious new babies to their families.

Memorable Father’s Day deliveries at HCA Healthcare East Florida Division hospitals include several new bundles of joy that are certain to make this Father’s Day one these dads will never forget.

HCA Florida Northwest Hospital in Margate had seven babies born on Father’s Day, HCA Florida Mercy Hospital in Miami welcomed three and HCA Florida Kendall Hospital in Miami welcomed one baby on Sunday.  (see below)

The chance of a baby born on Father’s Day is of course one in 365 so these dads certainly bucked the odds.

Father’s Day isn’t the only busy day for labor and delivery teams across the state. In fact, a baby is born every 16 minutes at HCA Florida Healthcare hospitals.
