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.
