The Health and Wellness Foundation assists Sparta Community Hospital to educate the community by providing wellness programs, make facility expansions, provide new services and to purchase new equipment.  Our goal is to expand the knowledge to our patient care area of the availability and appropriate use of our healthcare services.

With a history spanning over 65 years, Sparta Community Hospital has been caring for generations of families.  Your generous support can help ensure that the healthcare you need remains close to home for years to come.

Together, we can continue to renew your hospital and the future of healthcare in our community.

The Health and Wellness Foundation recently donated $80,000 to Sparta Community Hospital for their new Genius 3D Mammography exam equipment.  We wish to thank all of our generous donors for their support.

One of the projects for the Foundation at this time is supporting the new Student Explorer’s Program.  Through the SCH Explorers Program students will experience and learn “hands-on” all of the many opportunities in the healthcare field alongside the hospital’s healthcare professionals.  The program will also help students to decide if a healthcare career is the right fit for them.

“Our SCH is team is pleased to introduce students to professional career options available locally and to help guide them on a career development path, which in turn could benefit the local area healthcare system”, states Joann Emge, CEO.  “We are excited to assist the youth in identifying their goals and mentoring them in career opportunities.”

Exploring is implemented through local Boy Scouts of America and is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate a specific Explorer post or club by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.
