The San Marino Guild of the Huntington Hospital recently presented $20,000 to the Huntington Hospital for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for the purchase of a Criticool Hypothermia Therapy unit to treat newborns following birth asphysia. This specialized equipment is a full body cooling wrap which delivers cooling therapy within minutes, greatly increasing the baby’s survival without brain damage.
San Marino Celebrity Series Co-Chairs, Sharon Pippen of San Gabriel and Doreen Mason of South Pasadena made the presentation to Tracy Smith, Huntington Hospital’s Director of Major Gifts.
Since the Guild’s inception 63 years ago, members have focused on providing the “gift of life” to as many infants in our Southern California community as possible.
The 47th Celebrity Series will begin on Sunday, February 8, 2015, with favorite professor Dr. Elliot Engel speaking about Michener. For program information, please call 626. 799.3148 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
