  • Rich Stories of Healing and Community Involvement Abound – and Will Grace the Hospital Walls

    Posted 7 July 2015 8:18 AM by TCAuthor3

    The “human mind is a story processor, not a logic processor,” said a very wise man, Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist and researcher at New York University. His observations about the workings of the human brain got me thinking about health care. We constantly juggle the relentless needs of reporting statistics, calibrating doses, and crunching numbers, with the softer, kinder, warmer side of our jobs. This is something I see every day – caring, nursing and nurturing moments that we remember and repeat to others.

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

    Posted 30 June 2015 11:14 AM by TCAuthor3

    Volunteer greeters in a hospital do so much more than just give directions. They help put people at ease and let them know that someone is here to help them.

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

  • Health Care Drives Shawano's Economic Health: One Million Dollars Invested

    Posted 9 June 2015 8:43 AM by TCAuthor3

    A little over one year ago, we reported that the construction of the new ThedaCare Medical Center-Shawano had already brought $244,000 in new spending to the Shawano area community. This month, I am happy to report that we’ve surpassed the $1 million threshold for local spending and investment as a result of our historic construction project.

  • 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.
