November 13, 2017

On Nov. 3, the USNS Comfort welcomed Isaias Valerio-Fonseca, the second baby born aboard the ship since it arrived in Puerto Rico to help hurricane victims there, according to an article on Military.com.

Isaias was born three weeks after the Oct. 14 birth of Sara Victoria Llull Rodriguez, the first baby born aboard the ship in seven years.

The Comfort, one of two hospital ships belonging to the Navy, arrived in Puerto Rico on Oct. 4 to provide medical care to those affected by Hurricane Maria.

After early reports that few were able to access the care the floating hospital provided, the ship docked in San Juan on Oct. 27, and the staff aboard treated more than 270 patients in just two days.
