Oklahoma health system donates to hospital workers in wake of tornado
Published: June 20,2014
LOUISVILLE — The Norman Regional Health System in Oklahoma has donated $48,000 to the Winston County Medical Center in Louisville.
Norman Regional Health System President and CEO David Whitaker says the company wanted to help employees impacted negatively by the April 28 tornado. The Oklahoma-based health system is recovering from a 2013 tornado.
Winston County Medical Center CEO Paul Black says the donated money will be divided among affected employees.
Meanwhile, WCBI-TV in Columbus reports the city of Louisville has received a $10-million insurance check to cover the loss of the plywood facility.
Officials say the $10 million only covers the cost of the real estate. Money has been recovered yet for the loss of equipment due to the storm. The plywood company leased the building from the city.
