a major urban center like Chicago would have a tremendous positive impact for our companies, customers and employees."

In a coordinated effort with Illinois and Ohio, the State of Indiana is seeking funding to expedite the creation of a high-speed rail network across the three states. If built, this enhanced transportation option would dramatically reduce travel times between the region's major urban and economic centers, reducing the drive time between Chicago and Cleveland from six hours and 30 minutes to four hours and 30 minutes. In October, the State of Indiana submitted a request for a stimulus grant authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) for the addition of a high-speed rail line between Chicago and Cleveland which is currently under review.

"Our region must be in close consultation with the State of Indiana and the federal government to ensure we are included in the high-speed rail discussion for Illinois, Ohio and Indiana," said Toby Buck, chairman and CEO of Paragon Medical and an OrthoWorx board member. "The timing for this federal grant application and the creation of OrthoWorx provides the area a perfect formula to ensure connectivity to regional transit hubs like Chicago and Cleveland which is critical to the success of the orthopedics sector."

A $7 million grant made by Lilly Endowment Inc. to Kosciusko County Community Foundation supports the newly established OrthoWorx. In addition to launching the first of seven focus areas, the organization plans to announce organizational leadership and additional funding in the first quarter of 2010.
