NISPCO gift to help Franciscan in fight against COVID-19

A $10,000 donation from NIPSCO will help Franciscan Health Crown Point continue its efforts to care for patients, while limiting the spread of COVID-19. The gift from the NiSource Charitable Foundation was in appreciation of the partnership with the healthcare system, which has assisted the utility in getting employees tested for the virus, according to Rick Calinski, NIPSCO director of public affairs. “Healthcare providers like Franciscan and others are essential more than ever during this pandemic,” he said. NIPSCO’s donation was made through the Franciscan Health Foundation’s Preparedness & Response Fund, and will assist in installing thermal monitors at its entrances.
