Families and Family Foundations Help Build Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Families and Family Foundations Help Build Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Steve and Kim Ullman and their family foundation have generously provided the initial philanthropic revenue needed to complete the architectural and engineering plans and begin construction on the Santa Clarita Valley's only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This $6 million addition to Henry Mayo is a major part of the hospital's recently approved master plan expansion project.

At least one in every ten newborns is admitted to a NICU, so mothers and babies in the Santa Clarita Valley that need this special medical facility have had to leave their community to find appropriate care. This exodus will no longer be necessary when, thanks to charitable support from grateful patients, employees and community donors, Henry Mayo opens its NICU in late 2011.

Steve and Kim's $1.65 million gift was structured over three years and is, in part, allocated through their family foundation that was established to support the needs of youth. Steve Ullman said, "Our family feels fortunate to help with such a vital hospital facility. The need for newborns to be welcomed into this world with a safe and healthy start is not a luxury, it is a necessity. We are honored to participate in this wonderful new facility. We hope that the gift through our family foundation inspires other to consider ways to help the hospital."

The Henry Mayo Health Foundation has resources to assist donors in creating planned gifts, trusts, pledges, and many other creative tax-advantaged methods to help individuals and families achieve their personal and charitable goals.

John Schleif, Chief Operating Office at Henry Mayo, notes that, "By offering a NICU as part of our maternity center, we hope to give women the security of delivery in a facility that can care for their babies, even in the event of high-risk pregnancy, or emergency situation."
