Big shoutout to Jessie Poplicean and Justin Becker from Williston for welcoming little Jayson Lee Becker into the world, weighing a healthy 8lbs 11oz. Jessie couldn't stop raving, saying, "He's a healthy little dude!"

She compared the care here to a previous experience in Florida, where she felt like just another face in the crowd. But here? She praised Dr. Teuma and the nurses, feeling like they genuinely cared about her and the little guy.

Guess what? Jayson's got a super excited five-year-old sister named Jayde at home, totally stoked about having a baby brother.

To top it off, the family got a gift basket loaded with baby must-haves. Huge thanks to the Upper Missouri District Health Unit and CHI St. Alexius Health Williston for that sweet gesture.

Last year, this place was buzzing—663 babies were born here! They're all about shaping the future of Williston. Brenna Freed, the Maternal Child Manager, couldn't be prouder of her team. She highlighted how their care oozes compassion and spoke of leading this amazing crew at CHI St. Alexius Health Williston.
