Peoples Bank & Trust Makes Generous Donation
November 27th, 2017
Peoples Bank & Trust recently committed to a $50,000 donation to the Pana Community Hospital Foundation. The funds will be used toward the Pana Community Hospital, “Your Health-Our Future” Building Project. The Bank will provide these funds in five annual installments beginning in December 2017. The building project is the largest expansion to Pana Community Hospital since the 1970’s. Over 30,000 square feet will be added to the back and front of the hospital and will be designed in two phases. Phase I of the project will create additional space for a new surgical suite, laboratory, diagnostic imaging, cardiopulmonary, materials management and dietary departments. Phase II will create additional space for an urgent care, improve access to the hospital building and provide a contemporary waiting area with private registration offices. The PCH Foundation has pledged to raise $1.5 million towards the cost of the project.
The check was presented to the Foundation by Terry Schafer, AVP/HR and Karen Kerr, VP, Operations. Accepting the check on behalf of the Foundation were Vicki Gullion, Foundation Vice-Chairperson, Kim Rodgers, Foundation Executive Director and Trina Casner, President/CEO of Pana Community Hospital.
This facility expansion and improvement project represents a momentous step toward the Hospital’s mission of being the leading partner in assuring community-based, quality health care for the citizens of Pana and surround communities. Peoples Bank is very pleased the Hospital has shown the foresight and commitment to initiate this project, and the Bank is very happy to be able to assist in this endeavor. The Bank is committed to not only serve our customers, but the communities that we serve. Several Peoples Bank & Trust Board of Directors and Officers are current or past members of the Pana Community Hospital Board of Directors and Hospital Foundation Board of Directors.
