Marshfield doctor's legacy lives on

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

An effort is underway to memorialize a Marshfield doctor.

Pediatric Intensivist Todd Stewart, MD died July 1, 2013.

Now, a project is underway in his name.

Ministry Saint Joseph's Children's Hospital is building Todd's Family Lounge. It's part of a $150,000 construction project in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

Stewart's widow and two children say they are especially pleased with the project because it will help families who have sick and injured children during stressful hospital stays.

Proceeds from the Festival of Lights Auction in Marshfield will benefit Todd's Family Lounge.

Donations for the project can be made to the Foundation at Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital at this link: www.Ministryhealth.org/sjhfoundation. The phone number is 715-387-9965.
