SEATTLE, June 6, 2006 -- On March 30 of this year, Swedish Medical Center physicians and clinicians helped deliver and care for the first recorded set of quintuplets born in Western Washington. After they were born, each of the five premature infants spent numerous weeks in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and ISCU (Infant Special Care Unit). Slowly but surely, each of them became healthy and strong enough to finally go home.
While the Stevenson's were at Swedish waiting for the impending birth of their five new family members, Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter Carol Smith wrote an article about their story. Since then, she has been checking back in with the family and just recently wrote a follow-up article about them now that they're all home.
That article ran on the front page of today's Seattle P-I. To read the article and scroll through an online photo gallery of recent pictures, click here.
