Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital announced that New Year’s Day brought a welcome addition to the Hernandez/Escorcia family in Hollister.
Jose Elin Hernandez and Nancy Santos Escorcia welcomed their son, Jose Elin Hernandez III, on New Year’s Day at 8:25 a.m. He weighed in at 8 lbs. 12.6 ounces, was 21 inches long, and was delivered by Dr. Zarin Amin, OB/GYN, according to the hospital in an announcement.
Jose has the distinction of being named First Baby of the New Year at Hazel Hawkins Hospital.
Nancy’s original due date was Jan. 13, so his early arrival was quite the New Year’s surprise for his parents.
The couple was excited that the boy was the hospital’s New Year’s Baby and were all smiles when the staff in the hospital’s Maternal Child Unit presented them with a gift basket and gift certificates to celebrate the occasion, according to the hospital.
Jose is the first child for the couple.
