JASPER — National Office Furniture, a brand unit of Kimball International, has awarded its fourth Gift of Inspiration for Healthcare to Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital of Louisville. The gift includes $25,000 in cash.

The gift will be used to renovate and expand the hospital’s emergency department. The hospital’s emergency team served more than 48,000 patients last year, though it was designed to serve about 12,000.

Jennifer Nolan, president of Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital said that the funding “will bring dramatic improvements in the comfort and satisfaction of the patients, families and caregivers that we treat.”

The hospital is part of KentuckyOne Health and is the eighth recipient of National’s Gift of Inspiration program. Through the program, National has donated $185,000 to healthcare and education organizations since the program’s inception in 2009.
