Community Involvement

As part of our mission, Stoughton Health is dedicated to improving the health of the communities and people we serve.

Health Priorities
Through numerous initiatives and partnerships, Stoughton Health contributed over $4.2 million in community benefits and charity care in the fiscal year 2021-2022. Our hospital, along with all Wisconsin hospitals, has a common mission to provide compassionate, quality care and promote wellness and hope in our communities.

Stoughton Health remains committed to providing essential health care to anyone in need, regardless of their ability to pay. We are also committed to improving the health and well-being of Stoughton and the surrounding communities.

While Stoughton Health remains committed to providing safe quality health care with exceptional personalized service, we recognize we have limited resources to address all the health needs issues identified. Through a community health needs assessment, Stoughton Health has selected three priority areas of focus over the next three years.

  • Behavioral Health
  • Chronic Disease Prevention
  • Injury Prevention

Stoughton Health and Stoughton Library Team Up to Support Girls’ After School Program

Resilience training helps teens to cope with life challenges and obstacles in a healthy manner. Learning how to tap into strengths and support systems guides teens to make positive choices.

Girl-2-Girl (G2G) is an after school program for girls in grades 6-12 designed to encourage development of strength, confidence, honesty, and service by creating a close-knit community where girls can discover and celebrate their true selves.

Stoughton Health and the Stoughton Library teamed up to support G2G through a book donation. With resilience as the topic of the month of May, they chose, “The Resilient Teen: 10 key skills to bounce back from setbacks & turn stress in to success,” by Sheela Raja. Stoughton Health also donated a copy for the library’s collection.

Past G2G mentor, Tracy Markle, shared that benefits of programs like this one go well beyond the time the teen is in the program. Healthy relationships, strong character, and advocacy follows them into their college years and beyond.
