Mary Greeley Medical Center Falls Just Short in Setting Guinness World Record

AMES, Iowa -- Mary Greeley Medical Center hoped to earn a place in the Guinness Book of World Records on Sunday but fell just short.

The hospital celebrated its 100th anniversary at the Scheman Center on the Iowa State campus.

Organizers tried to set a record by gathering the most people in one place who were born at the same hospital.

They needed 1,221 there, but they fell 24 people short.
