His parents, Israel and Sabrina Benavidez just moved to Del Rio recently from Austin, TX and were thrilled with the excellent care they received. "Dr. Salama arrived quickly and baby Isaac was born within 45 minutes of his arrival. Everyone has been great. My nurse Nicole was very sweet and comforting while Lainey was very informative and made sure all my questions were answered." said Sabrina Benavidez. "The charge nurse was Kandis and she took the time to show me how to breast feed and he has been doing great since then."

The first baby born to VVRMC of the year received a special gift from the Women's Department that includes clothes, diapers, socks, toys, a bath tub, and other items. As first time parents, the Benavidez' appreciated the gifts and the compassionate care they received from all staff.
