On January 1, DECH welcomed its first baby of 2019.  Matt and Molly Hall and their three daughters welcomed Ezra James Hall to their family at 7:33 a.m.  The Hall’s beautiful baby boy weighed in at 6 pounds, 3 ounces and was 19 ½ inches long. Mom and Dad are both extremely happy to have Ezra join the family as are their daughters.  Eight-year-old Gianna said, “I thought we were going to have a girl, but I have been waiting a long time for a brother.”  Bella, age six, said, “I thought the baby would be a boy, but I wasn’t sure. I wanted a brother.” Three-year-old Delia said, “I knew it was going to be a boy. I love boys!” All three already love their brother and enjoy holding him and helping Mom and Dad. Ezra is one lucky little boy to have so many people who want to care for him.

Molly’s comment on her experience at DECH: “I love this hospital!  The nurses are amazing and they take such great care of you.  Shelby Leighton and Stacey Dorr were here when I had Ezra and they were just wonderful.  I’ll be staying another night and look forward to that great care.”  


The Halls were overwhelmed by the generosity of the many area businesses who had donated to the DECH New Year Baby Basket.  Thank you to all of the businesses for helping us welcome Ezra to our Community: Bangor Savings Bank, Bar Harbor Bank, Berry Vines, Bella Vita, Bluebird, DECH, DECH Auxiliary, Dunkin Donuts, Hammond Lumber, Hair Loft, Hannaford, Helen’s Restaurant, Hing Garden, McDonalds, Machias Family Pharmacy, Machias Savings Bank, NAPA Auto Parts, Parlin Gardens, Pat’s Pizza Machias, PCT Communications, POSH, ReFind Furnishings, R.H.
