VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital welcomed its first baby of the New Year on Jan. 1, at 8:48 p.m. Darrell Brown, Jr., MD, delivered the baby girl, who came in at 18.5 inches long and weighed 6 pounds, 8 ounces. Parents Shelby Scott and James Bullock of Chase City named their bundle of joy Vada Noelle Scott-Bullock. They received a gift bag from the hospital with clothes and supplies to get them started.
“I’ve never had such a good experience in the hospital,” Ms. Scott said. “Everyone was so nice I didn’t want to leave.”
