Duke Energy Foundation awards McLeod Health Foundation grant to benefit Clarendon hospital


The Duke Energy Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the McLeod Health Foundation for a Rural Hospital Care Equity and Assistance Initiative. The money was recently presented to the team at McLeod Health Clarendon.

McLeod Health Clarendon plans to purchase two new clinical recliners for the hospital's Intensive Care Unit with the money it was awarded. These recliners will provide more comfort and safety features for ICU patients.

"We appreciate the partnership of our community partners in delivering our mission of improving the health and wellness of the communities we serve."

The Duke Energy Foundation powers the vitality of the communities it serves through philanthropy focused on vibrant economies; climate resiliency; and justice, equity and inclusion. More than $30 million in charitable grants each year are the driver behind the impact and improvements in these communities.
