Proceeds from this year’s Golf Classic are dedicated to St. Anthony cancer services. To date, more than $986,000 has been raised through St. Anthony’s annual golf outing for hospital projects, including cardiology services, cancer services, cancer endowment, pastoral care endowment, physician recruitment, emergency department, and healthcare scholarships.
“On behalf of St. Anthony Regional Hospital, I am honored and humbled by the outpouring of support our community members in the region and the state of Iowa have displayed through this year’s Golf Classic,” said Randal Hess, M.D., Radiation Oncologist at St. Anthony. “It is through a combination of community support and the skilled hands of our medical team members at St. Anthony that we can continue to advance the quality, compassionate cancer care services we offer locally.
