Gifts Sponsor opening of New Intensive Care Unit at Henry Mayo

Gifts Sponsor opening of New Intensive Care Unit at Henry Mayo

Generous charitable gifts from a Santa Clarita family, over 500 enthusiastic Henry Mayo employees, and a local foundation are enabling Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital to turn the hospital's old administrative headquarters into a sophisticated new 18 bed Intensive Care Unit, which will open this year. Although many individuals and small businesses in the community gave to make this $9 million project a reality, the biggest boost was a $2 million gift from Wayne and Connie Spears, who, along with their children and grandchildren are grateful Henry Mayo patients. Hospital employees have given over $340,000 so far, and the UniHealth Foundation provided a $405,000 grant.

Connie Spears was generous in her praise of the new ICU. .."We are forutnate that Henry Mayo is always there to provide outstanding critical care. Three generations of our family have personally experienced superb and attentive treatment."

For decades, critically ill and injured patients have received lifesaving care in Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's intensive care unit [ICU]. These patients and their families are faced with life-and-death situations so profound that, for however long it lasts, it becomes the focus of their lives.

Henry Mayo is grateful and proud that community philanthropy is playing a prominent role in making the new ICU possible. ICU patients will receive the very best in critical care when it's most needed. The ICU expansion was spurred by an increase in the number of patients and the development of national standards of care, but it delivers in more than these areas by allowing growth in other parts of the hospital.
