What's Happening at Sunrise Rotary
 
Melissa Breen, Chief of Staff of the Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS), spoke to us about the growth and plans MCHS is looking to achieve in the coming years. As a Wisconsin native, she appreciates being back "home" and enjoys her role communicating with audiences internal and external to the Health System. She described MCHS's expansion of inpatient care services through acquisitions of several hospitals, including St. Joseph's in Marshfield, and building others from the ground up, such as the now 1 year old Marshfield Medical Center - Eau Claire, and the hospital currently under construction in Minocqua.
 
Talks between MCHS and Gundersen Health System leaders continue regarding a potential merger of the two health systems. The deal may take several years to come to fruition and will only proceed if MCHS leaders feel it is a good move for the patients, employees, and future of the Health System. 
 
Breen reconfirmed MCHS's dedication to serving and staying the Marshfield community.A plan has been submitted to the City of Marshfield for changes to take place to the Marshfield Campus over the next 10 years. The first visible change will be a new skywalk to connect the Hospital to the East Wing, which is expected to begin construction in the next several months.

The Marshfield Sunrise Rotary Club celebrated it’s annual Passing of the Gavel ceremony on Thursday.

Knoeck also recognized club leadership for their year of service.
