ConocoPhillips today announced the company will donate a total of $1 million over four years to the St. Joseph’s Hospital New Campus Project to support health care services for current and future residents in the community and surrounding area.
Greg Ashdown, operations manager for the company’s Bakken area, today presented the first of four $250,000 annual donations to Jodi Bosch, director of Foundation and Communications for St. Joseph’s.
“Dickinson is the virtual epicenter of energy development activity in the Bakken,” Ashdown said. “This new facility will be a great addition to serve the people living in the area and working to grow the state’s energy economy.”
ConocoPhillips Lower 48 business unit has field offices in Dickinson, ND, Watford City, ND, Sidney, MT and Billings, MT with approximately 150 employees. The company is currently running 11 drilling rigs in the Bakken.
St. Joseph’s Hospital and Health Center was established in Dickinson in 1912 and is currently building a new $100 Million campus in west Dickinson. The new hospital and medical office building are set to open in the late fall of 2014.
“The Bakken is an important development and growth area for ConocoPhillips,” Ashdown added. “Our support for this new medical facility is just one way to demonstrate to residents of Dickinson and all of North Dakota our commitment to the area.”
