Project Made Possible Through the Generosity of Donors
NEENAH, Wis. – ThedaCare is committed to enhancing healthcare by reinvesting in our facilities and the communities we serve. A 16-week renovation project is now complete at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah.
“We are improving the patient experience through renovation projects such as this one at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah,” said Dale Gisi, President of ThedaCare Regional Medical Centers-Appleton and Neenah. “It’s important to provide updated care spaces where our patients and their families feel welcome, and our team members can continue to provide the best care possible, close to home.”
The transformation was made possible entirely through the generosity of donors to the ThedaCare Foundation-Neenah, including a lead gift from Bergstrom Automotive.
“Providing funding for projects like the renovations in Neenah is our way of saying thank you to the community,” said John Bergstrom, Chief Executive Officer of Bergstrom Automotive. “Our team at Bergstrom and the entire community, all benefit from the care provided by team members at ThedaCare. We are fortunate to have a hospital serving our friends and neighbors.”
Renovations highlights include renovated areas in the main entrance, main lobby and the Aylward Surgery Center Registration. Visitors will also notice new flooring, wall coverings, furniture and more.
The renovations are an example of the longstanding legacy of ThedaCare in Northeast and Central Wisconsin. More than 110 years ago, Theda Clark Peters dreamed of a better life for the people of her community. Before her sudden passing at age 32 in 1903, just three days after giving birth to her only child, she made sure her hometown of Neenah would have a hospital to care for the sick and improve the health of all people – young and old – by designating a significant financial gift.
On Oct. 18, 1909, the sixth birthday for Theda’s daughter, ThedaCare opened its first doors, ensuring care and health for generations to come. The legacy of Theda Clark Peters lives on in ThedaCare more than a century later, with hospitals and clinics, physicians and staff, in improving the health of the people in the communities she loved.
“These community leaders have stepped up to help ensure that ThedaCare continues to provide outstanding patient care for the next 110 years,” said Gisi. “Our communities will be forever grateful to those generous donors.”
The finished project was celebrated with a ribbon cutting and receptions for team members at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah.
