The first baby born at St. Luke’s Wood River (SLWR) in 2022 was Eloise Varnum Klomhaus. Eloise arrived at 5:01 p.m. on Jan. 1, 2022, weighing 5 pounds, 12 ounces, and measured 18 1/2 inches long.
Eloise is Annie and Derek Klomhaus’s second child. Annabelle, her older sister, is 18 months old. The Klomhaus’s spend time in Austin, Texas, and in Sun Valley. Annie Klomhaus commented, “We love it here and chose to have our baby here because of our amazing doctor (Dr. Julie Lyons), the beautiful facilities at St. Luke’s Wood River and to spend time over the holidays with family and friends.”
St. Luke’s Wood River and the SLWR Foundation provided a special gift basket for the first 2022 baby with diapers, a baby blanket, a book, a stuffed animal, a onesie, knit cap and other goodies.
