RMCH delivers their first baby of the New Year


McKinley County’s population grew by one at 5:05 am on New Year’s Day when Karalynn Stormy Chiquito was the first baby born at Rehoboth McKinley Christian Hospital.

Proud parents, Karen Kinsel and Cordell Chiquito, were very excited to have their daughter born on New Year’s Day. She weighed in at 6 pounds, 4 ounces and was 17 ¾ inches long.

The family resides in Thoreau and this is their first child. They are pictured here with Twila Moots who presented them with a newborn gift box courtesy of the RMCHCS Auxiliary.
