The money came from Subaru cars sold between November and December. Customers picked from several foundations to donate their money to.
"We would never be able to do what we do and we would never be able to fulfill our mission if it wasn't for generous businesses and folks like this and the effort of the community to support us," said Mike Wiltermood, the CEO of Enloe Medical Center.
"Well, it is always nice to re-invest in our community. I think it's very important for all of us to give back so that's what we try to do during the course of the year and be able to give back," said Jerry Pajouh, CEO and President of the Courtesy Automotive Center.
Currently, the Enloe Foundation is focusing on building an expanded cardiovascular care center on the hospital's Esplanade campus.
