On March 8, 2021, International Women’s Day, Rockford’s Illinois Bank & Trust, a subsidiary of Heartland Financial USA, Inc., presented a donation of $10,000 to SwedishAmerican’s Breast Health Program.
“Illinois Bank & Trust is a true supporter of SwedishAmerican and their breast cancer services to everyone in the community,” said Gina Caruana, Illinois Bank & Trust SVP, Head of Retail. “We value the support that SwedishAmerican provides to our community on a daily basis.”
Director of SwedishAmerican Foundation, Laura Wilkinson, said, “Illinois Bank & Trust has been a valued partner with SwedishAmerican for many years and we are grateful for their continued generosity to our Breast Health Program.”
Illinois Bank & Trust donates proceeds from each transaction using a Pink Ribbon Debit card through their Taking a Swipe at Cancer Program. Since 2012, over $200,000 has been donated to SwedishAmerican and other local health care providers to support women’s health.
The generous donation from Illinois Bank & Trust will be used to help expand the services offered by SwedishAmerican’s Breast Health Program. “We are thrilled at the opportunity to build upon the excellent care we provide to our patients,” Dr. Lacey Stelle, Breast Surgeon and Breast Program Director explains. “We are always striving for a more comfortable experience and better clinical outcomes.”
