Grant Regional Health Center Reaches $500,000 Campaign Goal

Lancaster, WI – Grant Regional Health Center (GRHC) is proud to announce that it has surpassed the $500,000 goal for the Obstetrics (OB) Renovation Campaign which was launched in the Fall of 2019.

The project includes the addition of new, updated equipment as well as a remodel of the OB unit which also features a triage room. In November 2020, work began on the triage room, which was funded through a $100,000 grant award from the Lancaster Community Fund.

"We have an amazing hospital right here in Lancaster and the Lancaster Community Fund is happy to support its continued pursuit for the best quality of care for Lancaster and area residents. The birthing center renovation will be a wonderful addition to this outstanding facility. Just as wonderful, so many other community members felt the same way and chose to invest in this project as well,” said Amara Hoffmann, Lancaster Community Fund Chairperson.

The campaign initially kicked off with a lead commitment of $100,000 from Drs. Jeff and Erin Huebschman. Dr. Erin Huebschman is one of the Family Practice physicians at Grant Regional Community Clinic who practices OB.

“My husband and I are inspired by the community support of the GRHC OB remodel” said Dr. Huebschman. “Our expecting moms and their families will be treated to newly updated birthing suites to make their experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible,” she added.

“GRHC is proud that this project is entirely funded through donations from those who believe in the Mission…Together we are dedicated to improve the health and wellness of all generations through high quality, compassionate, patient-centered care,” said Brandi Riechers, Foundation Coordinator. “There have been over 220 donors to the OB campaign including individuals, families, businesses and grantmaking organizations. The hospital could not be more thankful for the support!” she added.
