Webster, Texas — Clear Lake Regional Medical Center and Dr. Rod Turner, OB/GYN helped Masako & Katsuyoshi Ueyama welcome their daughter, Kokone, into the world at 1:04 a.m. on January 1, 2015. Kokone weighs seven pounds and zero ounces and is 20 inches long. The Masako’s are from the Clear Lake area and this is their first daughter. Baby Kokone has a brother who was eager to meet her.

“We are very excited about being a family of four now,” said Katsuyoshi Ueyama. “Being able to receive high-quality healthcare close to home made this an enjoyable experience.” 

“We are honored that more Houstonians have chosen us—year after year—to help welcome their children into the world and be part of memories that will last a lifetime,” said Stephen K. Jones, Jr., Chief Executive Officer at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center. “This is our 41st year ringing in a new year with a newborn Houstonian.”

Kokone and her family received a gift card donated by Babies ‘R Us and the Clear Lake Regional Medical Center’s VIP package which includes a spa robe, baby blanket, gourmet meal for the new parents, meal cards for their guests, mini-fridge stocked with beverages, fruit and cheese try, chocolate truffles and a flesh flower arrangement.

To all the families we have served and to all of the families who will choose us this year to provide healthcare for their families, we wish you a happy and healthy new year.
