Shelby County State Bank Donates $50,000 to HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital Foundation


Shelby County State Bank donated $50,000 to the HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital Foundation’s centennial fundraising campaign in December 2018. It is the largest contribution the hospital has received during this campaign.

“These funds will support facility renovations, new technology and enhance the patient experience,” said Good Shepherd Hospital President and CEO Aaron Puchbauer, MBA, MHA, FACHE. “Donations such as these helped establish a hospital in Shelbyville a little more than 100 years ago. This type of community financial support allows us to provide the facilities and services that make our community a better and healthier place to live.”

Shelby County State Bank board chair Noel Bolinger said the bank views the hospital as a very important part of the community. “We wanted to do our part to make sure Good Shepherd can continue to provide good health care to residents of Shelby county.”
