SIOUX CITY, IA: – The Siouxland Community Health Center (SCHC) in Sioux City has been awarded a grant to beautify the Health Center’s campus at 1021 Nebraska Street. The grant is valued at $27,565 and will be used to cover the cost of much-needed improvements to the physical landscape of the building.
In 2012, the Siouxland Community Health Center initiated a construction project that added 5,000 square feet to accommodate patient growth. During the three-year construction project, the health center grounds were disrupted which resulted in the loss of significant green space and landscaping. The grant from the Gilchrist Foundation will enable the Siouxland Community Health Center to return those spaces to their previous condition and will include the planting of new sod, shrubbery, trees and flowering plants.
Siouxland Community Health Center CEO, Mari Kaptain-Dahlen, expressed her appreciation to the Gilchrist Foundation its their generous gift. “We are fortunate to have a beautiful facility but the recent construction project literally destroyed our landscaping,” said Kaptain-Dahlen. “This generous grant from the Gilchrist Foundation will allow us to make additions that will create an environment that is both functional and beautiful.”
Work on the landscaping project will begin this month.
