HOUSTON, TX – January 3, 2014 – The Woman’s Hospital of Texas at West Houston Medical Center and Dr. Gilbert Sayegh helped Amori Mooresh and Silva Sulaiman welcome their son, Sam Mooresh, into the world at 3:40 AM on January 1, 2014.  Sam weighs 6 lbs 13 oz and is 19.5 inches long.  The Mooresh’s have resided in Katy for 1 year and this is their second son.  Baby Sam has an older brother, Adam, who was also born at West Houston Medical Center 14 months ago, and can’t wait to take him home.

“My husband and I were dancing the night away celebrating the New Year when Sam decided he was not going to be left out” says Silva Sulaiman.  “He joined us a few hours later, ten days before his due date, and we are very happy to be starting the year off with him.”

“We are honored that so many families have chosen West Houston Medical Center to welcome their children into the world and be part of memories that will last a lifetime,” said Todd Caliva, CEO of West Houston Medical Center. “For 28 years, West Houston Medical Center has been bringing families a New Year’s Day baby.”

Sam and his family received a gift basket filled with newborn essentials from the West Houston Medical Center Volunteer Auxiliary. 

West Houston Medical Center wishes a happy and healthy new year to all that we have served and those whom we will serve in the coming year.
