CUSB Bank Employees and Board of Directors are proud to personally donate $3,865 to the Chemo Infusion Center at Regional Health Services of Howard County. The bank made a challenge to the community last Fall to collectively match their $50,000 donation and the bank’s employees and directors wanted to contribute towards that challenge. The donation is going to the Rural Chemotherapy Expansion Fund, bringing oncology care to area residents.

On hand to present the check were (front row, left to right) CUSB Vice President and RHSHC Board Member Jay Johnston, CUSB President and Board Member Mike Drees, RHSHC CEO Robin Schluter, RHSHC Board President George Willis, and RHSHC Vice President of Operations, Jennalee Pedretti (second row, left to right) CUSB Employee Rachel Johnston, Board Member and VIP Connection Director Ronda Hughes, CUSB Employees Stephanie Sovereign, Vanessa Henry, Brenda Mashek, Joann Mrachek, Lisa Nelson, Emily Dohlman-Govern, Dan Ollendick, (third row, left to right) CUSB Employees Jodi Rosendahl, Kristie Curtis, Lori Bronner, CUSB Board Member Gordy Koehler, CUSB Employees Deb Novak, Holly Losen, Angie Quam, Amy Roberts, Tammy Stevenson, Michele Johnson, Wanda Rice, CUSB Board Member and Employee Doug Krabbe, CUSB Wealth Management Solutions Wealth Manager Kevin Janssen, (back row, left to righ) CUSB Employee Holly Manske, CUSB CEO and Chairman of the Board J. Scott Thomson, CUSB Board Members Charley Perry and Dale Schwade, and CUSB Employees Austin McConnell, Stephanie Gallagher, Doug McCabe, and Brian McConnell.

The Rural Chemotherapy Expansion Fund was created to support the Coordinated Care Alliance between RHSHC and oncology specialists at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Chicago in Zion, IL. This alliance offers advanced oncology care to area residents. Patients will receive coordinated care from both RHSHC and CTCA® providers. In addition, clinical telemedicine services will connect patients via real-time videoconferencing to CTCA Chicago oncologists for regular visits close to home. This collaboration marks the first CTCA coordinated cancer care alliance in the state of Iowa.

Donations are still needed for this fund. Gifts can still be made toward chemotherapy services at RHSHC by making a cash or check donation made to The RHS Foundation designated for chemotherapy. Please send gifts to Regional Health Services of Howard County Foundation, 235 8th Ave W, Cresco, IA 52136. For questions about donating, please call 563-547-6345.
