In honor of American Heart Month, each baby born at Baptist will receive a free red hat. The first batch of hats were given to the newborns on Friday, February 7 on Go Red For Women Day.

The gift is to raise awareness of heart disease in both women and infants.

Volunteers, employees and employee family members donate their time and yarn to make the crocheted or knitted hats. 

The special hats vary in design and shade of red. Every year as a way to recognize Heart Month, hundreds of red hats are made and donated.
