By making a gift to Lake Regional Health System, you help us continue to provide exceptional health care to our community.
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.”
The new, 40,000-square-foot tower will bring together existing heart care clinics under one roof with all of the diagnostic testing services needed to create a world-class experience for patients. Construction also will expand cancer treatment services, where recent investments in technology and recruitment have created a need to accommodate more patients. The goal is to raise $10 million to $15 million through community giving before breaking ground. The scope and pace of the project will depend on the level of community support.
