Oconto Falls – HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce a set of grants from the Leon H. and Clymene M. Bond Foundation, Inc. that will support the Nurse’s Nook program and mobile mammography services in Oconto County.

“We are immensely grateful to the Bond Foundation for their generous support of these programs which are critical to the health and well-being of so many throughout this region,” said Chris Brabant, President and CEO, HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital. “We applaud their philanthropic efforts and dedication to the growth and improvement of Oconto County and its surrounding areas.” 

Nurse’s Nook, a program of HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital, provides aid to children and families in need in all five school districts in Oconto County. The program provides aid such as food, personal hygiene products, clothing, medical supplies/devices and transportation assistance for medical appointments. The Bond Foundation has awarded $40,000 to enhance these efforts.

An additional grant, in the amount of $11,000, will support mobile mammography services in Oconto County. HSHS hospitals in Eastern Wisconsin and Prevea Health launched a mobile mammography unit in May 2018 which now travels on a regular basis to Prevea Health centers throughout Northeast Wisconsin, including in Oconto, Marinette, Gillett, Mountain, Lena and Pulaski. The $11,000 will help HSHS and Prevea Health raise more awareness about this service in Oconto County, and encourage women between the ages of 40 and 75 who have not received a mammogram and who live in Oconto County, to schedule an appointment for a breast cancer screening.
