Patient story

 

Special Connection for the Jarvis’

The soldiers of the US Army’s 131st Engineering Company had decided ahead of time; they would all sacrifice their personal internet time for their buddy Kevin, whose wife was expecting their first child. This allowed Kevin, with a little help from the Family Birth Center nurses and the IT folks at Northwestern Medical Center, to experience the birth of his daughter Payton while on duty in Iraq, half a world away.
