first baby 2019

Peninsula Regional Medical Center welcomed its first baby of the year at 12:43 a.m. on January 1, 2019 with the birth of little Emery Adkins. She weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces and was a bit of a party crasher for parents Corrie and Sean Adkins of Salisbury. Corrie said Emery was born two weeks before her due date, and they couldn’t be more delighted that she has arrived. Big sister Hayden, 10, also said she was very excited to welcome her new sibling.

Along with a memorable birthday, Emery received a basket of beautiful baby items, including clothes, a handmade blanket and toys as a gift from the Junior Auxiliary Board. President Jani Long presented the basket on behalf of the Junior Board.

The Junior Auxiliary Board, in 2019, is celebrating its 95th year of service to the physicians, staff and volunteers of Peninsula Regional Medical Center and the people of the Delmarva Peninsula.  Since 1924, it has donated more than $8 million to expansion projects, medical equipment, supplies and services at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
