Employee Sharing Program
Each year our Employee Sharing Program begins February 1st. Employees have an opportunity to make a difference and contribute to funds that enhance the experience of employees, patients and families at Bellin Health.
Employees can designate how their individual gift is used. Employees may choose two giving options and the gift will be split equally.
- Tim Wilmet Memorial Scholarship Fund Tim Wilmet, an employee of the Bellin MRI department, and one of the first MRI techs in northeast Wisconsin, passed away on November 22, 2016.
