Crosby, ND, September 20, 2023 - The Bank of Tioga is proud to announce its recent $5,000 donation to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Crosby, ND, to help provide better access for patients and residents with a new emergency room entrance door. Additionally, a portion of the funds will support at-risk families with insurance needs.

“St. Luke’s Medical Center is essential to the health and well-being of our community. We are honored to be able to give back to them in this way and help area residents have continued access to essential services, including the 24-hour emergency department,” said The Bank of Tioga President, Savanna Hendrickson.

The mission of St. Luke’s Medical Center is to provide comprehensive and compassionate health care for individuals and families by delivering quality healthcare through a team of dedicated professionals in a compassionate and growing environment. St. Luke’s Medical Center provides medical services in the areas of acute, outpatient and extended care.

“We are so thankful that Bank of Tioga’s donation has enabled St. Luke’s to move forward with a new door for our ER entrance. A new glass and ADA handicap accessible door will greatly improve the aesthetics, but most importantly the access for our patients and residents. We are excited for this much needed improvement,” said the St. Luke’s Medical Center CEO, Jody Nelson.
