St. Francis Memorial Hospital Foundation Fund Drive Tops $60,000

West Point – Larry Kampschneider, St. Francis Memorial Hospital Foundation Fund Drive Chairman, was pleased to announce this week the foundation raised $60,062 during their 2015-16 Annual Fund Drive.

“Our area hospital supporters step up every year to ensure we have quality care and cutting-edge equipment,” said Kampschneider. “We can’t thank you enough. Your support continues to keep St. Francis Memorial Hospital one of the best equipped and best staffed rural hospitals anywhere.”

The funds will be used to help furnish a brand new trauma level x-ray room in the hospital, giving St. Francis Memorial two such rooms. The x-ray equipment alone will cost approximately $80,000.

Having two trauma level rooms a tremendous benefit for regularly scheduled patients and when accidents occur with numerous victims brought to the facility at once.

Kampschneider noted that 382 donors supported the foundation, an amazing number.

“We are very blessed so many area residents support the hospital and help us continue our legacy of giving. These donations are put to work enhancing our hospital and its’ ability to care for those we love.”

Since the foundation was formed in 1962 it has raised almost five million dollars through the generous support of donors.
