Donation will help improve patient care

GREEN BAY - Community leaders Terry and Kris Fulwiler have committed the largest single gift in Bellin Health's history - $1.25 million. In recognition and appreciation of the generous gift, the surgical floor of Bellin Hospital will be named the Fulwiler Family Surgical Center.

"This tremendous donation by the Fulwiler family will assist other families in the Northeast Wisconsin region in need of high-quality care and services," said Michael Frohna, Bellin Foundation president, at a dedication ceremony on August 22.

The Fulwilers, long time leaders in the community, have devoted much time and resources to numerous organizations. Terry Fulwiler serves on the Green Bay Packers Board of Directors and joined Bellin Health's board in 1994, to be later elected as chairman in 2002.

He also serves as chairman of the board for WS Packing, one of the largest printing and label converting operations in North America with 17 manufacturing locations. The Algoma-based company was founded by his father, Raymond Fulwiler in 1966.

"My father believed in small company service and high-quality products," said Terry Fulwiler. "It seems fitting that his name be associated with an organization such as Bellin - one with similar values and dedicated to the people in Green Bay and the surrounding communities."
