CARTHAGE, Ill. — Teegan Rex Hickey was born on Jan. 4, becoming the first baby delivered at Memorial Hospital in 2022. Teegan, who weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces and measuring 19 inches tall, is a son of Victoria Moore and Dylan Hickey of Macomb. 

When deciding where to deliver their first baby, Moore and Hickey expressed what they most desired in a hospital. 

“We knew we wanted to deliver Teegan in a small hospital where we would receive a personal touch,” Moore said. “We are so glad we chose Memorial Hospital. Teegan has been showered with love and attention, and we are so grateful for the incredible staff here.” 

The staff at Memorial Hospital, Memorial Medical Clinics and Hancock Village donated items for Teegan and his family to celebrate his arrival. Donated items were diapers, wipes, clothing, blankets, toys and gift cards.
