Loyola Medicine has made news for delivering two of the smallest babies to ever survive. The record for the smallest premature baby to survive was broken in September 2004 by Rumaisa Rahman, who was born at Loyola at 25 weeks' gestation. At birth, she was 8 inches (20 cm) long and weighed 8.6 ounces (240 g). The previous record, also achieved by Loyola, was held for some time by Madeline Mann, who was born at 26 weeks weighing 9.9 ounces (280 g) and measuring 9.5 inches (24 cm).
