Congratulations to Dr. Tris
Dr. Somjai Tris and his family arrived in Sulphur Springs in 1981. He began delivering babies at Hopkins County Memorial Hospital and recently delivered his 10,000th baby.
The HCMH Board of Directors, administration and staff — especially the OB/nursery staff — would like to thank him for the hard work and dedication he has provided to the mothers of Hopkins County and the surrounding area. Dr. Tris also delivered a set of triplets born at Memorial Hospital and is now delivering second generation babies, as well.
Dr. Tris attended Medical School at the Chulalongkorn Medical School; he did his residency at the Catholic Medical Center of Brooklyn/Queens and his residency at Misericordia-Fordham. He worked at McIntosh Memorial Hospital in Ashley, N.Y., prior to coming to Sulphur Springs.
The 10,000th baby born is also a very special baby girl. Layla MaKenzie was born Thursday, Oct. 22, 2009, to Eldon and Letha Reynolds. She weighed 7 lbs. 10 ounces and 19 inches long. Letha graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Okla., with a doctorate degree in pharmacy. She currently works at CVS in Denton as a pharmacist. Eldon is a part-time sales associate and a full-time student at the University of North Texas. He is currently majoring in kinesiology, with the hopes of becoming a football coach and a teacher. He is originally from Hinton, Okla.
Letha also has several connections to Memorial Hospital. Her mother, Debbie Darlin is director of dietary, and she has two aunts working at the hospital— Vickie Smithers, RN, works in ICU, and Kay Hudson is a registered nurse in the ER.
After meeting Dr. Tris for the first time, Letha and Eldon said they knew that they wanted him as their doctor and were willing to make the drive from Denton. They really liked his attitude, honesty and openness. Layla is a blessing that Dr. Tris helped deliver into this world.
Thank you, Dr. Tris, and congratulations!
