PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - Paducah Bank committed $100,000 to the campaign for the Lourdes Hospice Cancer Center.
The 10,000 square-foot center will bring inpatient hospice services into one designated location to enhance care and provide a home-like atmosphere for patients and their families.
“The people in our community are the very reason Paducah Bank has been part of Paducah/McCracken County for 65 years. We truly believe it is our privilege to give of ourselves and our resources when the community is in need of our support. We know that this new hospice center will bring important help and emotional healing to those facing terminal illness, and we are honored to be part of making it a reality,” said Paducah Bank CEO Joe Frampton in a news release.
Earlier this year, Lourdes Foundation began a $7 million fundraising campaign to pay for the construction of the facility and create an endowment fund for future patient needs.
