To celebrate these special deliveries, a spectacular flock of 2,500 manmade storks will greet visitors at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium this month. Visitors at ZooBoo will have an opportunity to sign a stork with their baby’s name, take a picture with it, and then post the photo on social media to receive a free onesie from AHN.

Who: The storks represent Living Proof of the many babies delivered in the last year at AHN’s Forbes Hospital, Jefferson Hospital, Saint Vincent Hospital and West Penn Hospital. Throughout ZooBoo, AHN women’s health team members will be available to answer questions on services offered at AHN facilities, including obstetrics and gynecology, well-woman care, women’s behavioral health and breast care.
