MIDLAND - A big gift given to Midland Memorial Hospital as they kick off the "Capital Campaign" to build a new patient building.
On Thursday, Clarence Schabauer Junior, pledged 25 million dollars over the next five years to the capital campaign.
He handed over a five milllion dollar check to kick it off.
All to help the hospital make big changes.
"The hospital is planning to build a new patient tower to replace our 50-60 year old in-patient beds and ICU beds, and labor and delivery, and surgical space, and Mr Scharbauer's gift will be the foundation of a larger capital fundraising campaign that we hope will continue to bear fruit through the course of the year," Russell Meyers, with Midland Memorial Hospital said.
