Dr. Jacqueline Turner has delivered somewhere around 5,000 babies during her 30 years practicing obstetrics and gynecology.

“It has happened on many occasions, when I’ll go to a delivery and have a room full of relatives of the patients and will have delivered babies for everyone in the room – which is a great feeling to have,” Turner said. “We take care of a lot of families that way.”

On Friday, April 28, Turner received the Stellar Performer Award at the Salute to Excellence in Health Care Awards Luncheon, an event whose net proceeds fund college scholarships through the St. Louis American Foundation.
