A photo from October 2013 shows the new Sauk Prairie Hospital, scheduled to be finished in April, under construction.


The last baby has been born at the old Sauk Prairie Hospital at 80 First St., according to a release.

On Saturday the Sauk Prairie Hospital moved from 80 First St. to the new site at 260 26th St. in Prairie du Sac, officials said.

The last baby to be born at the old hospital was welcomed into the world by Colleen Neefe and Jeremy Neefe, of Lone Rock, according to the release. Lennon Rae Neefe was born on Friday at 10:06 a.m.

The Birth Center staff celebrated the milestone by giving the mom and dad a gift basket, according to the release. Staff members are now waiting for the first baby to be born at the new location, which could happen any day.

There have been 12,947 people born at the old location since 1956, according to the release.
