"We are extremely grateful for the gifts from Commerce Bank and the William T. Kemper
Foundation, and for all of the community support we have received throughout
this campaign," said Ruth Heffel, executive director of the foundation.

The campaign has a goal of $5 million for the construction of a new medical
