MUNSTER — The Community Hospital Auxiliary made a $25,000 donation of its $50,000 pledge to the hospital’s Medical Technology Endowment Fund, the largest to date to that fund.

The Medical Technology Endowment Fund has been established to acquire new medical technology to help ensure that area residents do not need to leave their community to realize the benefits of advances being made in medicine.

“While there appears no limits to what technology can accomplish, there are limits to the hospital’s resources to acquire new medical technology,” Community Hospital Administrator Don Fesko said. “This gift will help speed progress and support innovation, offering new hope to our patients.”

Advances in genetics, information sciences, robotics, and nanotechnology are growing at a rapid pace and hold great promise for preventing, slowing and even curing some of the most troubling diseases.

The Community Hospital Medical Technology Endowment Fund is intended to help attract and retain physicians and medical professionals who are dedicated to using new knowledge to better the lives of everyone in the community.
