HSHS St. John’s Hospital Thursday renewed its tradition of awarding Stork Pins in recognition of first responders who assist in the pre-hospital delivery of an infant. The latest ceremony honored Michael Flynn, Frank Morrell and Ben Mundstock of the Springfield Fire Department along with Jeffery Bone and Kyle Enstrom of the Chatham Fire Department. They were recognized for their assistance with a healthy delivery on Father’s Day, June 18, 2022. “Delivering a baby pre-hospital is a badge of honor for first responders,” said Tina Molohon, RN, TNS, TCCC, trauma coordinator, HSHS St. John’s Hospital. “We are so excited to once again offer the Stork Pin program to our region. Any first responder from any organization who delivers a baby pre-hospital that is then brought to St. John’s is eligible.” The baby delivered by the firemen honored was Corbin Sarsany. Now nearly 2 months old, his mother and father say Corbin is a healthy and happy baby boy who enjoys spending time with his big sister.
