Mourning the Loss of Dr. Sheldon B. Korones

This community has lost a healthcare pioneer in the passing of Dr. Sheldon B. Korones. The staff at Regional Medical Center, along with many others in this community, was saddened to hear of his passing. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and the medical family whose lives he touched. Dr. Korones founded the neonatal intensive care unit at Regional Medical Center in 1968 to improve the health and well-being of our community’s tiniest citizens. His impact on this community continues to be felt today, and we are forever appreciative of his work and his contributions to quality of life improvements in newborns.
