Our History

The Skip Cline Society is named in honor of Harry Sykes “Skip” Cline Jr., after his untimely death. To his friends, Skip embodied the ideals of a young leader — charisma, enthusiasm and energy. He was raised close to Morton Plant Hospital, in a family long devoted to charitable ideals.  Since 2004, Skip Cline Society members have provided a legacy of young leadership and raised more than $340,000 in support of the hospitals of Morton Plant Mease, including the following projects:

  • BabySIM – An interactive baby simulator that helps our caregivers practice the assessment and treatment of infant conditions in a realistic learning environment
  • Giraffe OmniBed – An all-in-one neonatal care station that provides a developmentally supportive critical care environment for our high-acuity newborns
  • Broslow Color-Coded Carts – Facilitate the care of our pediatric patients by providing the needed medication and equipment in emergency situations
  • Handheld Vein Finder – A portable device that helps nurses easily locate patients’ veins to minimize unnecessary sticks
