Area bank donates $25,000 to children's hospital

Posted:

A local business is helping area kids stay healthy, but they're not a medical facility, they're a bank.  1st Source Bank donated $25,000 to Memorial Children's Hospital on Wednesday.

Memorial Hospital President Kreg Gruber says donations like this are incredibly important for hospitals.

Donations like the one from 1st Source Bank can help with a variety of programs, from acute care in the hospital to clinical care to education programs.  "They can get top notch high quality health care close to where they live," says Gruber.

Children's care can be costly for hospitals.  Most children in Indiana are covered by Medicaid, explains Gruber.  Reimbursements from the program don't always cover the costs associated with children's care.
