Dignity Health St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson, Nev., received the largest gift in its history — a $10 million donation from the Engelstad Foundation, according to a KDWN news report.

The donation will support the hospital's R.E.D. Rose program, which offers breast cancer detection and treatment options for underinsured and uninsured patients.  

The gift is from the family of Ralph Engelstad, a former casino owner and co-developer of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway who died in 2002.
