Franciscan St. Anthony Health is continuing their dedication to assisting economic development in Northwest Indiana. On Wednesday, Hospital PresidentJames Callaghan presented a check for $10,000 to the Economic Development Corporation Michigan City (EDCMC) for the 2014-16 community investment campaign.
Ten thousand dollars will be donated on an annual basis over these three years to assist the EDCMC with marketing efforts geared toward attracting new businesses to Michigan City and La Porte as well as ensuring good businesses that are here remain in the community.
“We always want to make contributions to grow our business base and community,” Callaghan said while presenting the check to EDCMC officials on Wednesday at the economic office in Michigan City. “We recently had a chance to talk with Clarence (Hulse), Chuck (Compton) and Bob (Schaefer) and decided we would like to boost our contribution to this effort.”
Hulse, executive director of the EDCMC, said he is exciting to once again have Franciscan on board for the next three-year investment campaign.
“Franciscan has always been a key partner in what we do, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future on different projects,” he said.
