De Pere, WI – To help enhance community wellness in the community, Aurora BayCare Medical Center today donated $10,000 to the De Pere Riverwalk.
“Aurora BayCare Medical Center is dedicated to improving the wellness of our communities and we believe the De Pere Riverwalk is helping with that mission,” said Dr. Paul Summerside, chairman of Aurora BayCare Medical Center’s board of managers.
“Providing these resources for the community is something we take great pride in. For example, last fall, Aurora BayCare constructed a one mile walking path around its campus to give caregivers and the community a safe area to be outside and be active.”
“The City of De Pere is grateful for Aurora Bay Care’s commitment to our community,” said De Pere Mayor Mike Walsh. “We are very grateful for their generosity toward the De Pere Riverwalk and Wildlife Viewing Pier and its enjoyment for years to come.”
The De Pere Riverwalk first opened in July of 2012. The Riverwalk is linked to Voyageur Park and the east downtown district, starting with a bridge at the De Pere locks and connecting to a viewing pier jutting into the Fox River.

Public Relations Guidelines and Procedures
The public relations team at Aurora Health Care operates under the following guidelines and procedures:
To arrange interviews, press should call public relations. A member of our team can help access a specialist. If the person a reporter requests is not available, we may be able to provide an alternative source.
Protecting the privacy of patients and families is our responsibility; it's also the law. Please do not come to our sites unannounced. Rather, contact public relations and we will find experts for interviews and connect you. We'll also make an effort to contact patients upon your request to ascertain their interest in being interviewed.
Ensuring patient confidentiality and privacy, and exhibiting sensitivity to all of the patients, families and employees at Aurora Health Care is of vital concern. Therefore, reporters, film crews and photographers must always be accompanied by a public relations team member while on any of the campuses.
To be photographed or videotaped at Aurora Health Care, patients or their legal guardians must sign a consent form. A member of our public relations team can arrange this.
Because of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) patients over 18 or their legal guardian must complete a release form before anyone who works at Aurora Health Care can release confidential information about a patient. A member of our public relations team can arrange consent
Reporters inquiring about a patient’s condition should contact a member of our public relations team, with the individual's full name.
