• Top 10 List on Why You Should be a Volunteer at our New Shawano Hospital

Our current volunteers can tell you about the satisfaction they get from helping others, or from being part of a team.

  • Hospital Move Like Ants on a Mission

    Posted 28 May 2015 11:17 AM by TCAuthor3

    Have you ever watched leafcutter ants? These little specks of mostly muscle and determination can haul chunks of plants that weigh up to 10 times the weight of the ant.

  • Look Up

    Posted 28 April 2015 4:17 PM by TCAuthor3

    We have become a nation of hunchers. We hunch over a keyboard, a game controller, a cell phone, a steering wheel.  Happy or sad, proud or humble, we look down. It’s time to look up.
