SNF Ribbon Cutting, August 1st, 2019

Door County Medical Center is excited to announce the first public showing of the new Pete and Jelaine Horton Skilled Nursing and Hospice Center located on their Sturgeon Bay Campus. 

Everyone is invited to participate in a self-guided tour of the beautiful new facility and to learn about the incredible features designed to provide comfort and dignity. A public ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by DCMC President and CEO, Brian Stephens, will take place on Thursday, August 1, at 3PM.

The 25,000 square foot facility is located in the green space on the corner of S.16th Place and Rhode Island Street. Resident-centered care is at the heart of the design and features a “two-neighborhood” approach. Each “neighborhood” offers 15 private skilled nursing resident rooms with one room in each “neighborhood” reserved for End-of-Life/Hospice care. Additional space is provided for family and friends of those receiving end-of-life care.

Ellie Neubauer, 102 years old, has lived at DCMC’s Skilled Nursing Facility for several years and thinks the new space will only make a good thing better. “They treat you like a person—it’s like being at home! I feel safe here and well-cared for. They really listen to you.”

“Our mission is to improve the health of all in our community, but especially for the poor and the most vulnerable. It is our mission, our duty, to take care of our senior population as they approach the end of their life,” says Mike Herlache, Executive Director of Door County Medical Center Foundation.

“It never ceases to amaze me how committed the community is to help ensure that quality health care continues to be provided at DCMC,” adds Herlache. “Growing older is something we all get to do, if we’re lucky. I am thrilled that this incredible resource will soon be available in Sturgeon Bay.”

The public self-guided tour begins after the ribbon cutting at 3PM and lasts until 7PM on Thursday, August 1. Please enjoy ice cream, refreshments and live music after your tour.
