Tuesday was a very special day for the Jonas Brothers. The Casa Grande Regional Medical Center in Arizona named their nursery after Joe Jonas. This is the same hospital where Joe was born.
Joe was also on hand to donate $10,000 to the hospital on behalf of Change for the Children, enabling the hospital to buy equipment and update its newborn nursery. During the dedication ceremony, the nursery was officially dubbed the Joe Jonas Nursery.
“I’ve never had anything like this named after me,” Jonas told a crowd of about 50 people who gathered for a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony at the hospital.
Jonas was born at the hospital on Aug. 15, 1989, weighing 8 pounds, 5 ounces. According to TrivValley Central, among those in attendance at Tuesday’s event was the delivery room nurse who attended in Jonas’ birth, Deborah Hoeft (formerly Browning).
“We are so excited to dedicate our nursery to Joe Jonas because we want to inspire our small-town community to know that their children can accomplish wonderful dreams,” said Rona Curphy, president and CEO of CGRMC.
“We consider ourselves family here at Casa Grande Regional Medical Center, and it is nice that one of our family members has come back to lend his name to our facility,” she said. “Joe Jonas is the perfect example of dream, believe and succeed.”
