MHP Welcomes First Baby of 2018
Adan Dean Martin was born at 4:12 am on January 4, 2018, making him Mahaska Health Partnership’s 2018 New Year’s Baby.
Adan weighed 6 lbs., 7 oz., and was 20 inches long. His parents are Patricia Snook and Travis Martin of Sigourney. His grandparents are Tim and Faye Snook of Oskaloosa and Crystal and the late Larry Martin of Sigourney. His great grandparents are James and Bonnie Handeland of Eddyville and Wallis and the late Beverly Lippard of What Cheer.
Adan was delivered by Family Practice Physician Shawn Richmond, MD. He was not due until mid-January, so being the New Year’s Baby was a big surprise for the family. Big brother Joshua, 4, has warmed up to the idea of a little brother.
“He’s healthy, that is what we are most happy about,” Patricia said. “Both of my children were born here at Mahaska Health Partnership. With Joshua, the Birthing Center had just opened. It’s as wonderful as I remembered!”
As MHP’s first baby of 2018, Adan received a basket full of gifts from MHP and Whispering Tree Gifts, the Hospital Auxiliary’s gift shop located just inside Entrance #4 on the MHP campus.
Shawn Richmond, MD, is a Family Practice and Obstetrical Physician with the MHP Medical Group. He is well known for the care and concern he shows patients during their pregnancy and as a family grows. He treats patients of all ages, truly embodying what is means to be a physician in family practice.
