LAKE CITY — Stewart Memorial Community Hospital held its fifth annual SMCH Auxiliary Trivia Night on Feb. 3 with 29 teams participating. The event raised $62,000, which will be used to improve areas in Lake City, Rockwell City, Lake View and Gowrie. Patients will benefit from more comfortable registration areas, larger restrooms, softer lighting, updated flooring and wall covering, and additional signage to share important health information.

“This event is our primary fundraiser to help support our Patient Centered Healing Environment project. The funds will be used to transform areas used most by patients in the medical clinics including upgrading bathrooms to meet ADA requirements,” says Mary Ludwig, director of marketing, development, and volunteers at SMCH.
