Community Launchpad

In 2012, Community Health Network announced an aggressive plan to foster innovation among its employees and external partners with the unveiling of Community Launchpad, an innovation incubator designed to develop healthcare advancements, improve healthcare delivery, and seed entrepreneurial opportunities to reinvest in future innovations.

Community Launchpad relies on philanthropic support from grateful patients and their families, corporations and foundations. Gifts of all sizes help fuel our not-for-profit quest to innovate, discover and create new opportunities. Community Launchpad’s future includes a patient’s first vision that explores new technologies, treatments and care models. Philanthropic funding is essential to bring big ideas to life, discovering new sources of revenue and cost savings, providing critical resources needed to reinvest in future innovations.

We invite you to be Community Launchpad’s philanthropic partner. Your gift designated to the Community Health Network Foundation’s Allen Hicks Innovation Fund will be an investment made in future breakthroughs that will change the lives of Central Indiana residents.

To discuss your gift, please contact Bente Weitekamp, vice president of development, at 317-355-4662 or e-mail Bente.
