Bringing a new life into the world is a joyous occasion. Bringing 2,000 lives into the world is something very special, indeed. 

Southwest Health and the Platteville Clinic at Southwest Health announced the July 16 birth of Vincent Gard, son of Amy and Jeff Gard of Platteville. 

Vincent’s arrival also marks a milestone in the career of Kevin Carr, M.D., who has now delivered 2,000 babies spanning a three-decade career as a family physician in Southwest Wisconsin. 

“We at Southwest Health recognize that Dr. Carr is an exceptionally talented and dedicated physician, and we are genuinely honored to count him as a member of our team,” said Dan Rohrbach, Southwest Health CEO. “He long ago earned the respect and admiration of our staff and patients, and the people we serve are better off today for his having chosen a career in medicine. I congratulate Jeff and Amy on their new arrival, and I congratulate Dr. Carr on achieving this amazing milestone in his very distinguished ongoing career.”

Jeff Gard is the men’s basketball coach at UW–Platteville.
