K21 Receives Donation From Multi-Township EMS

With funds provided by the recent purchase of Multi-Township EMS by Lutheran Health Network, M-TEMS has made a donation of $250,000 to K21 Health Foundation.
K21 will use the gift to continue to provide health-related grants that benefit the residents of Kosciusko County, according to a press release from the foundation.
The two organizations enjoyed a long-standing relationship prior to the purchase, with K21 granting funding to M-TEMS – now Lutheran EMS Kosciusko – for numerous projects and equipment that assisted them in providing high-quality emergency services to the residents of Kosciusko County, the release states.
Those projects included the purchase of cardiac monitors, CPR training equipment, a 4×4 rescue vehicle and state-of-the-art power cots. Many of these grants that were requested from M-TEMS were requests for all EMS services in the county, so several other organizations and areas of the county benefited, resulting in more consistency to first responder equipment used throughout the county.
“K21 is proud of the relationship we’ve had with M-TEMS over the years,” said K21 President and CEO Rich Haddad. “As the largest ambulance service in Kosciusko County, M-TEMS was in a unique position to help us achieve our mission of direct health care, prevention and healthy living.”
“We are so appreciative of the support we have received from K21 over the years,” said Scott Sigerfoos, director of Lutheran EMS Kosciusko. “With their help, we have been able to increase the quality of care we provide to the community we serve.”
K21 Health Foundation benefits Kosciusko County citizens by ensuring health care services are provided and advancing prevention and healthy living. For more information, call 574-269-5188 or visit www.k21foundation.org
