The medical and dental staff at Munster's Community Hospital has donated $125,000 to Indiana University School of Medicine Northwest. The funding will support expansion plans, including patient simulation equipment in the school's teaching laboratories. The gift marks the largest single donation ever made by the organization. Medical and Dental Staff President Don Henry says the donation allows the hospital to strengthen its relationship with the school and “help the next generation of physicians.” He says, as the medical school expands, the hospital will have more students rotating in.

The gift will be paid to the school over five years.

Indiana University School of Medicine Northwest completed a $1 million renovation in October 2012, including upgraded classroom facilities and group learning rooms. The school is still seeking additional funds for further expansion projects.
