Dr. David Robinson and his practice, Indiana Plastic Surgery, donated $2,500 to Community Healthcare’s Women’s Diagnostic Center.
Robinson’s contribution will help local women without insurance who cannot afford diagnostic breast care. Robinson and his staff raised the funds during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“I am thankful to everyone who contributed to the success of this important fundraiser,” Robinson said in a press release. “Their kindness makes a significant difference in the lives of women in need.”
The cause holds special meaning for Robinson. His mother, Virginia Robinson, died in 2015 after surviving a 28-year battle with breast cancer. She was involved with programs at Community Hospital. Her spouse, Edward Robinson, was the hospital’s administrator from 1967 to 2003.
Dr. Mary Nicholson, medical director of the Women’s Diagnostic Center and regional director of Breast Imaging Services for Community Healthcare System, expressed her gratitude for the donation.
“With this donation, we can help more women receive the best possible care,” Nicholson said. “I value Dr. Robinson’s commitment and partnership in our shared goal of improving the lives and well-being of women who turn to us during a time of need.”
The Women’s Diagnostic Centers of Community Healthcare System offer 3D mammography. The centers are nationally accredited for mammography and breast ultrasound, imagery and biopsy.
