The more than 3,752-square-foot building is located at 401 N. Michigan Road in Burlington and was used as a banking center before it was closed last year.

“We are always excited and pleased to give back to the communities we serve,” Salin Bank President and CEO Bill Salin II said.

“Burlington is a wonderful community,” said James P. Alender, president and CEO of Community Howard Regional Health. “The donation of the Salin building allows us the opportunity to open a primary care physician office here and bring high quality care to the families who live and work in Burlington. Renovations are expected to begin later this year.”

Under the agreement, the Bank plans on leaving the Salin Bank sign and ATM, which will enable the bank to continue to provide services to the community.

Salin Bank and Trust Company is one of Indiana’s largest family-owned community banks, with more than $750 million in assets. Salin Bank operates 21 banking center locations in 10 Indiana counties serving Columbus, Delphi, Edinburgh, Flora, Fort Wayne, Galveston, Gas City, Kokomo, Lafayette, Logansport, Marion, West Lafayette, Fishers and Indianapolis.
