LaPorte Hospital Foundation Receives $15,000 Grant

The LaPorte Hospital Foundation, on behalf of IU Health Starke Hospital and the Starke Health Fund, was recently awarded a $15,000 grant from the Northern Indiana Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help fight breast cancer.

This grant will assist low-income, uninsured women age 40 and older and women of any age who are at high risk for breast cancer to receive screening or diagnostic mammography services through a physician’s referral. This year’s funding also provides for the purchase of breast biopsy equipment for the Imaging Department at IU Health Starke Hospital.

Call your physician or the Imaging Department at IU Health Starke Hospital to see if you qualify for a free screening or diagnostic mammogram voucher at (574) 772-1143.
