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 goodwill 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.
