Thank you for supporting a second cath lab at LMH Health!

October 2021

The LMH Health Foundation team is thrilled to announce that we have met our fundraising goal of $1.3 million toward building a second lifesaving heart catheterization lab at LMH Health! Construction will likely begin in late 2022 or early 2023.

In early 2020, Sue and Dana Anderson made a $1 million challenge gift to the LMH Health Foundation in support of new patient-centered technology, including the second cath lab and surgical robotic technology. The Anderson’s generous gift launched a $3 million fundraising campaign in support of these cutting-edge technologies.

Sadly, we lost Sue to leukemia in late February 2021, but her philanthropic spirit continues to inspire us all.

“The LMH Health Foundation is excited to announce that we raised more than our $3 million goal in support of the second cath lab and surgical robotics,” said Rebecca Smith, executive director of the Foundation and VP of strategic communications for the hospital. “We couldn’t have done it without the leadership and the vision provided to us by Sue and Dana, as well as the generosity of our donors.”

“This second heart cath lab is an important investment for our hospital and greater community,” said Dana Anderson. “It will enable more patients to be treated locally and lead to better outcomes. I am deeply grateful to our community members for stepping up to this critical initiative and achieving the goal – it’s important to keep our nonprofit hospital strong.” 

Proceeds from the 2021 Penny Jones Open Golf Tournament went toward the second cath lab fundraising goal. Although we were unable to host the tournament on September 10 due to COVID-19, many businesses generously gifted their sponsorships toward this important cause.
