Nurses and doctors PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center have a problem with inadequate staffing. They say "staff to patient ratios" are insufficient and lead to more errors, infections and injuries. Now they've started an online petition to get the community involved.

Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield recently obtained an updated version of their robotic Da Vinci Surgical System. KLCC’s Desmond O’Boyle stopped by to check out what the new X-i system can do.

Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend welcomed its first baby of 2014 at 7:26 Wednesday morning. Emma Grace Baer is named after her maternal grandmother. She is the fourth child of Miriam and Levi Baer. Their three other children are all girls under the age of six.

The couple lives in Halsey, but is originally from Kentucky. They had planned for a homebirth, but opted for the hospital because the baby was found to have a cyst on her lung. Doctors say she appears to be in very good health but will need to be brought in for check-ups over the next few months.
