A Special Connection

When it comes to their children, Susan Dekker and her husband never had a second thought about where they wanted to give birth—Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital’s Family Birth Center. The Dekkers’ twin girls, Adalyn and Evelyn, had their own special story even before they were born. Beginning at week 18, the girls were found to be sharing a placenta. Because of Spectrum Health’s collaborative care model, Susan was able to see specialists at the health system’s own Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital as needed throughout her pregnancy. Susan delivered two healthy girls in August. “It was always so reassuring to know everything in Zeeland was connected to downtown Grand Rapids.”
