By making a gift to Lake Regional Health System, you help us continue to provide exceptional health care to our community.
Commitment to Caring Initiative
Lake Regional Health System has launched a philanthropy initiative, “Commitment to Caring,” focused on rallying community support for advanced health care services.
“Improving lives is at the center of all we do at Lake Regional, and we invite the community to come alongside us and take pride in advancing local health care,” said Dane W. Henry, FACHE, chief executive officer of Lake Regional Health System.
The first project to be funded by the initiative will enhance services for heart and cancer care. The $25 million, three-story tower addition to the hospital's north side will house a new Cardiac Institute and expanded Cancer Center. Currently, heart disease affects one in three Americans; cancer strikes nearly two in five. Drawing the community together through Commitment to Caring will help Lake Regional provide the best care for these diseases.
“Every dollar given through Commitment to Caring goes directly to fund capital projects and service expansions,” Henry said. “This will accelerate our advancement and, with enough support, accomplish in a few short years for our patients what would otherwise take much longer.”
Lake Regional has raised $1 million so far, including these gifts from corporate and individual donors:
Commitment to Caring Supporters
- Ameren Missouri pledged $50,000 over two years
- Lake Regional Hospital Auxiliary pledged $300,000 over five years
- Mae Young estate contributed $250,000
- Willis and Peggy Hansen donated $100,000
- Anderson Family Foundation donated $100,000
- Lake Regional HERO Club members have raised nearly $60,000
The goal is to raise $10 million through community giving before breaking ground. The scope and pace of the project will depend on the level of community support. We can't do this without you.
