St. Francis Receives Largest-Ever Gift


St. Francis Medical Center, Breckenridge, Minn., received a $125,000 donation, the largest in its history, from Perry and Karen Engstrom. The donation to the St. Francis Healthcare and Wellness Foundation Board’s Greatest Needs Fund will help the hospital purchase medical equipment and grow the endowment fund. Perry Engstrom is a semi-retired surgeon and Karen Engstrom is the former director of medical records at St. Francis. The hospital will name an operating room in honor of the couple.
