It took a few days but the new Mercy Health-West Hospital that opened Sunday welcomed its first baby Wednesday morning.
Sebastian Ray Cole, son of Shawna Patricia Schroppel and Jason Ray Cole, was born at 10:34 a.m. Wednesday. He weighed 7.9 pounds and measured 19.25 inches.
The West Chester baby has an older sister -- Cassidy Alexis Cole.
A limousine was waiting for the new baby outside the hospital.
