StatPacks Donation


Making a difference to preemies at Community Hospital. The Foundation made a donation to purchase transport bags (aka StatPacks) for the neonatal transports from St. Mary's and St. Catherines (sister facilities of Community Hospital).


The StatPacks are changing the way Emergency Clinicians think about carrying their gear. StatPacks medic bags keep the medic's hands-free to handle the unexpected and care for the special cargo in transport (micro-preemies).

Delivery of tiny baby leads to big gift

A 400-pound commemorative bench was donated, through the Nathan C. Splant Foundation to Community Hospital in Munster. The bench, made of recycled plastic, honors their son and all premature babies, since the family has never forgotten the health care team who helped to make their dream of having a child a reality.

"We are forever grateful to Community Hospital's NICU and all that they do for premature babies and families," Phil Splant said.  "The Foundation looks forward to many more years of giving back."
