Gundersen St. Joseph’s launches history project in anticipation of new facility

Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics is launching a history drive to gather images that depict the history of care in the region and show the hospital, clinics, nurses, doctors, staff and patients.

It is also an opportunity for community members to share images of their time spent at the hospital during the years. Such images may include community meetings, events, dedications and time spent as a patient, including births.

“There’s a lot of history in these walls. So much has taken place here over the last 64 years, and we want to ensure that we commemorate that history and preserve it for years to come,” said Dan Howard, marketing director at Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics.

“We want members of the community to share their memories with us. Whether they gave birth here, were born here, worked here, attended an event here or were just passing through, we want to see those moments when people connected with this building so that we can fully document the life of this facility as we prepare to move to the next chapter in St. Joe’s.”

The images will be used as part of a fundraising campaign and may be published in a book.

Images can be dropped off at Gundersen St. Joseph’s Clinics in Elroy or Wonewoc or at the hospital in Hillsboro any day after May 15. Special envelopes will be provided, and submissions will need to be accompanied by a completed submission form, also available at the clinics or hospital.

All photographs will be returned to the clinic for collection after they have been scanned.
