Castle Bank Gift to Valley West Heart of the Hospital Campaign

November 09, 2009

Valley West Community Hospital and the Kishwaukee Health Foundation would like to thank Castle Bank for their generous donation of $1,000 to the Valley West Heart of the Hospital Fund.

The Valley West Heart of the Hospital Annual Giving Fund began in 2004. To-date over $310,000 has been raised to help provide Valley West with new equipment and technology, allowing us to offer the best healthcare available to the community. A new diagnostic ultrasound system will be purchased utilizing Heart of the Hospital funds for the Valley West Diagnostic Imaging Department. This system will primarily be used for cardiac imaging and vascular studies such as venous and arterial dopplers of the extremities, but will also be used for general ultrasound studies including breast, OB, and abdominal organs such as gallbladder and kidney ultrasounds.

Future contributions to Heart of the Hospital will fund medical and technological advancements, as well as support our unrestricted endowment fund so we can help purchase items needed to offer a state-of-the-art hospital.

Donations to Heart of the Hospital have allowed Valley West Community Hospital to keep pace with medical advances. Many projects and pieces of equipment have been funded by Heart of the Hospital over the last 6 years including new birthing suites and emergency department equipment such as a new ultrasound machine purchased last year. These funds have been donated by community members who share our commitment for maintaining our reputation as progressive community hospitals.

The Health Foundation wishes to thank all of our donors to the Valley West Heart of the Hospital fund. For more information about Heart of the Hospital or how you can help us continue to provide quality healthcare in our local community, please contact the Kishwaukee Health Foundation at 815.748.9954, or make a secure donation online at
