Wisconsin Hospitals Provided $2.1 Billion in Community Benefits in 2022
Stoughton Health’s community contributions were featured in a new report released recently by the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA). Showcasing the many ways hospitals give back to the communities they serve, the 2023 WHA Community Benefits Report showed that Wisconsin’s nonprofit hospitals collectively provided $2.1 billion in community benefits in fiscal year 2022.
The report also documents how Wisconsin hospitals and health systems contribute to their communities. One of Stoughton Health’s community outreach initiatives featured in the WHA report is helping those living with Parkinson’s Disease. Stoughton Health is proud to offer Parkinson’s Disease exercise classes and has been able to expand program offerings from one class per week to three classes per week at two different locations (Stoughton and Oregon). In addition, Stoughton Health offers a variety of events including Community Blood Drives, kids’ classes, exercise classes, and COCPR training. The next blood drive is February 16 at the Stoughton Health Community Health and Wellness Center.
Laura Mays, Stoughton Health Public Relations and Marketing Director, shares, “As a community-based hospital, our commitment extends beyond our walls. We strive to empower our community to thrive by actively seeking opportunities to support the overall health and well-being of the communities we serve.”
