SPEARFISH, S.D. (Oct. 17, 2023) – Black Hills Community Bank made a large donation to the Monument Health Foundation to support the Spearfish expansion project and health care in the Black Hills.
Black Hills Community Bank pledged a total of $100,000. Half will be allocated to sponsor Foundation events, including the Northern Hills Hospice Ball and the Children’s Miracle Network Golden Guitars Gala. The other half will be allocated to support the Monument Health Spearfish Hospital Expansion Project and the Rapid City Children’s Expansion Campaign.
“As a community bank, we truly care about investing in the Spearfish community,” said Jeremy Hoven, Black Hills Community Bank Spearfish Market President. “The Spearfish Hospital expansion project aligns with our purpose as we continue to see the Spearfish community grow and thrive.”
The Spearfish Hospital Expansion Project was announced in May 2022 and the Monument Health Foundation committed to raising $6 million to support the overall project.
“Gifts like this help build momentum and highlight continued community support,” said Hans Nelson, Director of the Monument Health Foundation. “Black Hills Community Bank is a well-known and trusted name in the Northern Hills. Their support will inspire others to get behind projects like this.”
The expansion is anticipated to be a three-year project that will equip Spearfish Hospital to better accommodate the growing demand for health care services in the northern Black Hills area and Spearfish community.
