Cook and Orr Lions worked together to submit a request for a matching grant from the Lions Club International Foundation. The $66,555 request was granted in May, but required a match of $66,555.

Four organizations helped come up with the match: The Heiam Foundation, the Health Care Auxiliary, the Cook Timberwolves Snowmobile Club, and the Cook Fire Department Relief Association.

On Friday, August 9th, leaders from those groups plus the hospital and Lions Club members gathered to honor the donation.

The hospital's CEO, Teresa Debevec, said, "This analyzer will allow us to do more advanced testing. It's faster, and will save us money. Our current analyzer is over eight years old."
