Employees may also choose where their money goes within the health system – donating to any of the 40 funds managed by Regional One Health Foundation. The funds support everything from surgical equipment purchases and basic necessities for premature babies to advanced educational opportunities for medical staff.

Campaign for Healthy Newborns
The infant mortality rate in Shelby County hit an all-time low in 2011, with deaths occurring before an infant reaches age one down from 14.9% to 9.6% per every 1,000 babies born. While the rates are showing improvement, more efforts need to be made to further reduce infant deaths. Regional One Health has made a significant contribution to the drop in the rate, thanks to its commitment as a community partner for healthier babies and its availability of specialized training and cutting-edge technology through the Campaign for Healthy Newborns.
Regional One Health Foundation’s role in this effort is to provide philanthropic support to fund and expand hospital-based initiatives that advance the care of newborns and their moms.
The goal of this campaign is to continually improve neonatal outcomes by advancing services and patient care, knowledge sharing, education and communication with parents. Through this focus on newborns, philanthropy plays an important role in improving the chances of survival by reducing the chances for complications among our babies and their moms.
Funds raised are used toward three primary areas:
Preemie clothing - Babies can’t get far in their birthday suits. That’s why the Baby Clothes Closet at the Sheldon B. Korones Newborn Center at Regional Medical Center is so important for newborns that are ready to go home, but lack basic clothing and infant necessities. The Baby Clothes Closet is stocked with new infant and preemie items donated from individuals, corporations and local churches.
Leading edge technology - The Sheldon B. Korones Newborn Center provides a wide range of services tailored to the delicate needs of premature neonates.
Clinical-based education - Regional One Health Foundation supports comprehensive hospital-based programs that promote the importance of early and continuous prenatal care and enhanced nutrition, as well as the prevention and postponement of repeat pregnancies.
From the first day they’re born, our tiniest patients are fight for their lives. Please help them get the best start possible.
