GHS Coronary Care Unit Receives New Name
The late Buck Mickel, chairman and CEO of Daniel International Corporation and vice chairman of Fluor Corporation, was a leader in philanthropy as well as business. His family has carried on the tradition of leading and giving, with daughter Minor Mickel Shaw and sons Buck and Charlie Mickel administering the family’s charity, the Daniel-Mickel Foundation. The charitable impact ripples throughout our community, from the arts to education to health care.
Because of the Mickel family’s continued generosity and that of the Daniel-Mickel Foundation, the Coronary Care Unit of Greenville Memorial Hospital has been named in their honor. The Mickel Coronary Care Unit will continue its mission to provide a safe haven for the most critically ill cardiac patients. In addition to their specialized patient care responsibilities, the nurses who staff this unit educate patients and families about living with heart disease and provide support to the loved ones of those in the final stages of the disease.
The philanthropic efforts of the Mickel family will allow for lifesaving early interventions and educational efforts to continue well into the future, improving the lives of patients and families throughout the Upstate.
