BELOIT WI. (WREX) — Beloit Health System has provided services to the community for 50 years. While healthcare is ever changing, the mission for Beloit Hospital has always been the same.
“Our philosophy has always been to work with our community and to partner with other organizations to bring that best care to our community,” said CEO and President Tim McKevett.
Beloit Health System partners with University Wisconsin to provide patients with the best cancer services they can get without leaving their home.
Over the course of 50 years, Beloit Health System crossed the stateline. Their Northpointe campus became a high level center for urgent care in Roscoe. The 50th anniversary celebration calls to acknowledge health care providers and families who made it all possible.
“This is their health system and to thank them for supporting us over those 50 years and well into the future,” said McKevett.
Thousands of babies born at the hospital came back for a baby homecoming and free family fun activities. Employees, residents and those who take pride in their community could dance to live music, enjoy good food and relive memories.
One family drove from Indiana to attend the event.
“Jayden was born here. My daughter Ragina Dunken, who works at the hospital here, had told us about the homecoming for everybody,” said Betty Hinchen.
“We want to show her that we support her and we also support the services that Beloit Hospital offers for its citizens here,” said Nina Johnson.
And as for the next 50 years – health care providers say they will continue to support the Beloit community and serve anyone who is in need.
“Not only to give them the best care where they were born but to give them care throughout their lifetime,” said McKevett.
Beloit Health System focuses their effort on their dedication to work with the community and for the community.
