Gundersen St. Joseph's capital campaign reaches $1.8M, closes in on $2M goal

Wednesday, May 01, 2019



As the final beam for the new home of Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics is placed, another milestone is reached. St. Joseph's Memorial Foundation announced today it has reached 90% of its $2 million capital campaign goal.

Dan Howard, Director, Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital.

"This is truly amazing," says Dan Howard, director, St. Joseph's Memorial Foundation. "The support from the communities we serve has been overwhelming, especially considering the flooding we experienced in August 2018 and volatility in our local economy. What our rural region has achieved through this capital campaign so far is inspiring."

"We're not done yet," Howard notes. "We're continuing to work towards the goal of $2 million, and we feel that it is within our grasp."

"The communities have invested in us and we will not let them down," says Danni Gearhart, chief executive officer, Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics. "This facility will not only provide great care within its walls, but it will support our work outside of these walls as we look to build a healthier community for all. Thank you to everyone who shares this vision."

The 64,000 square foot facility is anticipated to open its doors in the fall of 2020. If you're interested in contributing to the capital campaign, contact Dan Howard at [email protected] or (608) 489-8259, or pick up a pledge form at the hospital.
