USB Invests $50,000 in the Health of the Community

Union State Bank officials announced Thursday that they are donating $50,000 to the Clay County Hospital Foundation to be used for Clay County Medical Center's Mother & Baby Wing renovation project. Union State Bank President Dwight Ferguson said, "by donating this $50,000 for the baby wing, Union State Bank is not only investing in the future of Clay County, but also in the future of Union State Bank. Union State Bank has been here for 101 years and plans on being here for another 100 years." Ferguson also said it was important to continue the Oberg legacy of giving back to the community.

When completed, the Mother & Baby Wing will have two LDRP (labor/delivery/recovery/post partum) suites, one combination post partum/LDRP room and one post partum room. The wing will also have a new nursery and waiting area. Hospital officials are pleased to have Union State Bank's support in providing a Mother & Baby facility that will rival and in many instances provide a better experience for families than larger birthing centers can. "Union State Bank's generous gift helps give our people the right facilities and there is no question that given the right facilities, our people can provide the best care," said Clay County Medical Center CEO, Ron Bender.

Union State Bank's contribution to the Clay County Hospital Foundation will go towards the completion of the new baby nursery and waiting area. "There is no question that local health care is important and USB plans to remain committed to the overall health of our community," said Union State Bank chairman of the board, Gary Griffiths.
