Corbin Alexander Zilney is PRHC’s first baby born in 2021 

On Friday, January 1, 2021 at 12:44 a.m., parents Ashley Merlin and Alex Zilney welcomed their son Corbin Alexander Zilney into the world.

The baby boy was safely delivered at PRHC in the wee hours of New Year’s Day, weighing seven pounds. Mother and baby are doing well and the parents are overjoyed with the new addition to their family.

“The care at PRHC has been wonderful, both on the antenatal side and here on [inpatient unit] A6,” said Ashley. “There are of course some differences delivering now than with my other three children because of COVID-19 protocols, but the team has done a great job of making us feel very comfortable.”
