Two area hospitals were awarded grants in March when the Duke Endowment distributed more than $2 million to hospitals in North and South Carolina.

High Point Regional Hospital received $18,621 and Lexington Memorial Hospital got $4,989.Founded in 1924 by North Carolina industrialist James Buchanan Duke, the endowment is one of the nation's largest private foundations, with assets totaling nearly $1 billion.

The endowment's beneficiaries include not-for-profit hospitals, children's homes, rural United Methodist churches and retired ministers, and four universities in the Carolinas.

In addition to its support of the indigent care program, the endowment awarded nearly $15 million to Carolinas hospitals in 1989 for construction, equipment and programs.

In the same grant package, 45 children's homes received nearly $1.25 million.
