AHS says 2022 New Year’s babies will not be announced

Given the current restrictions in place at our healthcare facilities and ongoing health system challenges brought on by COVID-19, Alberta Health Services (AHS) and Covenant Health will again not be identifying or announcing this year’s New Year’s babies.

“We hope to resume this practice in 2023,” AHS stated.

AHS says they understand that this is a traditional news event, however, it is simply not possible to invite media into our facilities at this time, or facilitate media interviews.

“In addition, our labour and delivery teams are extremely busy and priority must be given to patient care,” AHS said. “We congratulate families on their new additions and welcome these brand new Albertans to the world.”
