Local business owner Karl Krogen retires from the Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics Foundation Board Dec. 31.
Krogen served in the volunteer role for 14 years while balancing the demands of running a business.
“Serving on the Foundation Board allowed me the opportunity to better understand the challenges healthcare organizations face and the rapid pace at which things change,” he said. “Having a space to share my two cents, advocate for projects that will support both staff and patients and help support the health needs of Boscobel and its surrounding communities has been rewarding.”
The Boscobel Area Hospital Area Hospital and Clinics Foundation was established in 1990 to support and enhance the programs and services of Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics. With generous support from grateful patients, businesses and community members, the Foundation continues to support new equipment, service expansions, renovations, patient support programs, nurse residency scholarships and other initiatives at Gundersen Boscobel.
“Karl’s involvement in Boscobel and service to the Foundation has been critical in moving the hospital forward. He has devoted countless hours and willingly shared his talents and resources to assist the Foundation in fulfilling its mission to inspire donor support for Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics and ensure gifts are used effectively and responsibly to improve the health of the people and communities we serve. Karl has and will continue to be a valued voice and friend of the Foundation,” Gundersen Boscobel Administrator Theresa Braudt said.
“We want to thank Karl for his tremendous dedication. He has been instrumental in the Foundation’s evolution,” said Foundation Director Natalie Tollefson. “As both a financial supporter and loyal board member, Karl lives our motto of ‘local support for local healthcare’ and has made a lasting impact through his board service.”
