HALO SleepSacks A Welcome Gift From Welcome Home

Thanks to the support of KEMBA Financial Credit Union and the Mount Carmel Foundation, Mount Carmel's Welcome Home program is providing HALO® SleepSacks to new moms visits who give birth at Mount Carmel hospitals.

Halo® SleepSacks are wearble blankets that, in addition to being warm and cudddly, are a safer alternative to loose blankets and other soft items in babies' cribs that can contribute to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

"Mount Carmel is dedicated to ensuring that every baby starts a life healthy," said Mount Carmel Outreach Clinical Manager, Mary Jo Dickson. "This program and others like it are helping us actively address the infant mortality rate in Franklin County, which is higher than the State of Ohio, and the incidence of SIDS, which is the third-leading cause of infant mortality in the U.S."
