The Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Crown Point Auxiliary presented a $100,000 check to the hospital’s Capital Campaign during its annual business meeting on Jan. 28 in the Marian Education Center. David Ruskowski, hospital president, told of the priceless benefits the Auxiliary’s 240 members offer, adding their services amount to the equivalent of 15 to 20 full-time employees. Since the hospital opened in 1974, the group’s fundraising efforts have raised more than $2 million to benefit services and programs. The Capital Campaign is funding a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which is expected to open in The Birth Place in March, and recently funded construction of a new home for the St. Clare Health Clinic and the Prenatal Assistance Program, both of which provide free services to needy area residents.
