While the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation and Fort HealthCare collaborated to open up the ShopKo building for safe, masked and socially distanced community walking during the winter months, we do not have an estimated date for opening at this time.
We are working with a group on the east coast for the lease agreement and that is where the hold up is. Please visit this page for updates, as well as Fort HealthCare’s Facebook page, we will give notice as we receive updates.
The Fort HealthCare Community Health & Wellness Department coordinates community education and health-related events and screenings for the Fort HealthCare service area, collaborating with other hospital and health departments, area clinics, corporations, faith communities, schools, occupational medicine, government and nonprofit agencies, and other community organizations.
The Community Health & Wellness Department is also a key player in helping to fulfill Fort HealthCare’s vision to become the healthiest community in Wisconsin by implementing sustainable strategies focused on combating the nationwide obesity epidemic on a local level.
Fort HealthCare’s focus is to work with these community-based coalitions to mobilize the assets of our partners and reduce obesity among area residents in Jefferson County.
We are committed to greater engagement in the overall health of the community and are actively encouraging other individuals to join us. It is our goal to present information, education, resources, programs and tools currently in place in our community – and through our partnerships – to help individuals and families enjoy good health for now and in the years to come.
