BURLINGTON, Ind. — Family-owned and Indiana-based Salin Bank & Trust Company today announced the donation of its Burlington Indiana Banking Center Building (valued at more than $140,000) to the Community Howard Regional Health Foundation, Inc.

The 3,752+ square foot building is located at 401 North Michigan Road in Burlington and was used as a banking center before it was closed last year.

“We are always excited and pleased to give back to the communities we serve,” said Salin Bank’s President and CEO Bill Salin, II. “This is a win-win for Salin Bank, the Community Howard Regional Health Foundation and the Burlington community.”

“Burlington is a wonderful community,” stated James P. Alender, president and CEO of Community Howard Regional Health. “The donation of the Salin building allows us the opportunity to open a primary care physician office here and bring high quality care to the families who live and work in Burlington. Renovations are expected to begin later this year.”

“The Foundation is excited to accept this building on behalf of the hospital,” stated Rhonda Eastman, foundation director. “The role the Foundation plays is to enhance the mission of Community Howard Regional Health, and this building certainly falls within the scope of that mission.”

Under the agreement, the Bank plans on leaving the Salin Bank sign and ATM which will enable the Bank to continue to provide services to the community.
