Zoey Martin, Mount Desert Island Hospital’s 2011 New Year’s Baby, made her appearance at 1:37 am on January 5th.
Happy mom Karen Martin of Swans Island, pictured here with Zoey, had nothing by praise for the delivery team at MDI Hospital. “They’ve been amazing,” said Martin. “I couldn’t begin to thank them enough. They treat you like your part of the family.”
Karen was especially happy that her physician, Dr. Michael Heniser, DO, was available to perform what turned out to be a difficult delivery. “I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the team and Dr. Heniser. I have nothing but praise for him. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor,” she said. Based at the Community Health Center in Southwest Harbor, Dr. Heniser provides primary care and obstetrical services including delivery to patients on MDI and Swans Island.
As part of its annual tradition, MDI Hospital provided new mom and baby with gifts donated by area businesses. “We definitely appreciate the gifts,” said Martin. “It’s like Christmas all over again.”
