Partners of Stoughton Hospital

The Partners of Stoughton Hospital is an organization that provides financial and volunteer support to the hospital in a variety of ways. Dues are $10 annually and partners receive a monthly newsletter, a free flu vaccination every fall, and a 10% discount on purchases in the Gift Shop. Stoughton Hospital Auxiliary was organized in the mid 1950’s with the same objectives and mission we honor today. We aim to serve as good will ambassadors and provide assistance to the hospital staff and patients in a volunteer capacity. In 2005, we changed our name to the Partners of Stoughton Hospital to expand our membership to include men and women. We now have over 200 members and continue to grow. If you would like more information about becoming a partner, please call (608) 873-2205 or view the Partners Membership Brochure.

Love Light Ceremony

A Seasonal Tradition for the Entire Community
We know the beauty of a single light, but the brilliance of many lights shining together for a cause cannot be matched.

The holidays are a time of joy, laughter, family and friends. For many of us it is also a time of giving and remembering. Since 1992, our annual Love Light celebration has provided an opportunity to come together to remember and honor special people in our lives. Donations are collected to remember someone no longer with us, to recognize those who are serving or have served in the military, and to recognize those special people among us.

This year our Love Light Theme is “Inner Peace.” We all struggle at times to find inner peace, especially during the holidays as we remember loved ones who are no longer with us. We invite you to join us this year as we embrace the journey to finding our own inner peace. We are pleased to be going back to an in person event this year and are grateful to Christ Lutheran Church for agreeing to host Love Light.

The names of those being remembered and honored are read as three trees on the hospital campus are illuminated. Three Love Light Trees are located on the South edge of the Stoughton Hospital campus. The tree with white lights is to remember those we have lost. The tree with red lights represents a living tribute to someone special. The tree with gold lights honors or remembers those who have served or are currently serving in the military.

Although donations are accepted all year, gifts must be received by November 23, 2022 to be included in the 2022 Love Light Program.
