Help us break ground for better care
Lake Regional's Commitment to Caring initiative is our primary engine for advancing local health care services. Every dollar given will go directly to funding capital projects and service enhancements, including a $25 million, three-story tower addition to our hospital, containing a new Cardiac Institute and an expanded Cancer Center.
"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."
— Dane W. Henry, FACHE, chief executive officer of Lake Regional Health System
The 40,000-square-foot tower will bring together our existing heart care clinics with world-class diagnostic testing services, while also expanding our cancer treatment services.
The scope and pace of this project depends on our supporters. We've set a $10 million goal through community giving before beginning construction, and have already raised over $1 million.
"A hospital that has 100 beds isn't supposed to offer what we do. The truth of the matter is, if you can have excellent service provided locally, outcomes will be much better."
— Todd Cooper, M.D., emergency room medical director at Lake Regional Health System.

Lake Regional is equipped to take care of your diverse health needs, but it is up to everyone to support the health system. The stronger the hospital, the stronger the community." — Willis Hansen, former cardiac patient
"We are lucky to have a health system that has been recognized for so many of their programs and services, including cancer and cardiac care. We don’t have to travel far for quality care; it is in our own backyard." — Nancy Grove, president of Lake Regional Hospital Auxiliary
