New Year's Baby Arrives

New Year's Baby Arrives

The Family Birth Suites at Pratt Regional Medical Center was busy with four babies born between Christmas and New Year’s. But then no one was born in 2020 until baby Ramiro Esparza made his arrival on Friday evening.

The first baby of 2020 in Pratt, Ramiro, was born at 7:19pm on 1/3/2020, weighing 7 pounds 2 ounces and 20.5 inches long. 

Parents, Raymond Esparza and Daisy Marquez-Esparza of Dodge City, as well as two-year-old big brother Isaiah welcome Ramiro home.  For being the first baby of 2020, the family received a gift basket filled with diapers, clothing, books, bath items, cash and gift cards. Thanks to Pratt Regional Medical Center administration, employees and volunteers.
