Naming rights are available throughout the hospital. Thank you to the Wartmanns for giving back to the rehabilitation department and ensuring that this wonderful service will be available for years to come.

“I feel very fortunate that my wife and I were both able to receive rehab in our own community. We both felt safe at Edgerton Hospital, like the staff knew us by name rather than a number. All of our therapists were very kind, patient and above all, they brought back our quality of life. I am so proud to have Edgerton Hospital in our community, and I’m honored to give back and ensure that everyone will be able to benefit from this hospital far into the future. I would like to encourage anyone who is able to give, whatever the amount may be, to do so and help to facilitate the continued growth and outstanding care offered by our local hospital and rehab department.” – William Wartmann


Elizabeth Parker graciously secured the naming rights to the ‘George & Nancy Parker Pergola and Circle Labyrinth Garden’.

“For five years, I have watched an empty tract of land be transformed into a beautiful garden, rich in plant life of course, but also filled with a sense of tranquility and vitality – a balm for both body and soul.  This oasis of healing and health furthers the mission of the hospital and contributes to the community as a fitting legacy for my parents.  We are proud to be a part of it. “   Elizabeth Parker


Supporting Edgerton Hospital through its Foundation does so much more than fund state-of-the-art equipment and new programs, it enriches the lives of our families, friends and neighbors…all who utilize the hospital for the best care locally.

Long-time hospital supporters, Warren and Judy Kukla, recently thanked the individuals who have been caring for them for the past nearly two decades. Thanks to their generosity, hospital staff continues to have the best technology at their fingertips.

 “We have used the hospital many times over the years, for both emergency needs and rehabilitation. The care that we’ve received has always been outstanding, and we’ve grown to become very proud supporters. During a recent visit to the ER, we decided it was our time to give back, as we didn’t want this great care team to wait long for new equipment. They deserve the best, as that’s the type of care they’re giving to my family, and everyone who visits.”       -Warren & Judy Kukla


Thank you to Robert Shearer for dedicating the surgical suite and a patient room to his parents, Dr. Tom & Lois Shearer, as well as a generous matching gift for a Ear, Nose, Throat surgical system.

“My parents were involved in the hospital for as long as I can remember.  Not only was my dad on staff and on the hospital board, but my mom was a hospital auxiliary member. The example that my parents set, not only for myself, but others, is part of the reason that I continue to raise awareness of the great asset that Edgerton has in their hospital. It seems fitting then to dedicate a room to my parents, two people who have cared not only for their family, but also for the community in which they lived.”   Robert Shearer
