Winner, 57580 EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ATIEND! SANFORD DONATION Continued from Page 2 $1 million from Sanford Health to- wards a $23 million project. Plans call for 28,000 square feet of new construction and 16,000 square feet of renovations. The focus of the project includes a new clinic, emer- gency department, operating room, labs and radiology department. The updates will also allow the staff to deliver health care in a more effi- cient manner compared to the cur- rent facility which was constructed in 1947. "A commitment of this mag- nitude is a commitment to the fu- ture of Winner Regional and to the residents of our area," said Brian Schaeffer, board president for Win- ner Regional. "The remainder of the project will be financed through a USDA loan and other generous do- nations." Similarly, Sanford Health's $250,000 investment in Burke's Community Memorial Hospital will be used to modernize care and update facilities. The $6.5 million project will include a 17,600 square foot addition to the hospital. This addition will contain a new clinic with six exam rooms, a new emer- gency department, a new lab, a new radiology department and a new pharmacy. The last renovation was completed in 1988. "This project doesn't just ben- efit those who live in Burke," said Tom Glover, Community Memorial Hospital board chair. "The updates will serve many who live in our area and gives our local economy a nice shot in the arm." The investment amount from Sanford Health was determined by the total cost and scope of each project, with a contribution equal in proportion given for each project. The gifts from Sanford Health will be paid out over ten years. "Sanford Health commends the respective boards for their fore- sight and leadership in making these building projects happen," said Mike Begeman of Sanford Health. "We're proud to support these com- munities and excited for the patients and providers who will be utilizing these modern amenities." 4-H Family 18th Gregory County 4-H invites families with children ages 5-18 to attend our new 4-H family event to learn what you can do and learn in 4-H!
