Making a Big Splash!

     Franciscan St. Francis Health was on hand for the Aug. 26 grand opening of City Center Park in Old Town Greenwood. The hospital was a founding partner of the project, donating $25,000 earlier this year. 

     The contribution was designated to help build the Splash Pad and other family-friendly activities at the park.
