Culbertson Hospital Gets Major Gift

Rushville, IL – A gift from a former Schuyler County resident has more than doubled the size of Culbertson Memorial Hospital's foundation. Marketing Direcator Luan Phillips says the foundation board will meet this week to decide how it will apportion a $1 million gift. She says the gift came from Elmer Taylor, who now lives in California. She says he grew up in Schuyler County and has not forgotten his roots. Phillips says the foundation will probably invest most of the gift as principal, but could consider some special projects. She says these might include health career scholarships.
