On Tuesday, October 10th Stoughton Health held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new 56,000-square-foot Medical Outpatient Building slated to open in spring 2025. The program included remarks from Stoughton Health President & CEO Dan DeGroot who credited Stoughton for its caring and supportive community. The first hand-up came from Jerry Gryttenholm and the Board of the Edwin E. and Janet L. Bryant Foundation. “Because of their commitment to a very substantial gift, this campaign gained energy and excitement,” added Laura Mays, Foundation Executive Director. The Stoughton Rotary Club also made a generous donation in the memory and honor of past Rotarian Dr. Don Beresky, who was a cherished ophthalmologist who served the community for many years. Speakers included community members Keith and Tammy Anderson, Eldon Homes owners and founders, Steve Peotter, One Community Bank President and CEO, Besty McClimon, Wahlin Foundation, Inc., and Dr. Sarjoo Patel, BEAM Healthcare CEO, all who generously supported this project.
“Preparing for future growth now is the most cost-effective way to ensure that Stoughton Health will be able to continue achieving its mission to provide safe, quality healthcare with exceptional personalized service,” said President and CEO Dan DeGroot. “Our growing communities and aging population need and deserve safe, quality healthcare locally,” he added.
The project will consist of enhancing space for specialty clinics, bringing Stoughton rehabilitation services back onto the main campus, and preparing for the future with shelled space. In addition to space, this project begins a journey towards a greener campus by reducing electrical consumption by using solar panels.
