KCHC Silver Lake Grand Opening

Kenosha Community Health Center (KCHC) invited the greater community to their Grand Opening of their new Location in Silver Lake on June 3rd. Western Kenosha County has long awaited this health care service. Several years ago, KCHC met with the Sharing Center to identify needs and then submitted a grant proposal for the project.  The new office had such great demand that they started accepting clients in May.

Kenosha Community Health Center (KCHC) opened in 1995 and now offers Medical, Dental and Behavioral Health services. KCHC has three service sites in the City of Kenosha and one in the Village of Salem Lakes, making preventive and health management care affordable, accessible, and attainable.

Centrisys/CNP, Kenosha, Wisconsin press release: Centrisys announced the completion of a 34,000 square-foot building expansion, including an upgrade of its balancing equipment with a first-of-its-kind centrifuge balancing bunker in the interior of the building.

In 2016, it became apparent that the capital equipment manufacturing building was running out of workable space and needed an expansion. According to Kopper, “As the decision-making for the extension evolved, the addition of a next-generation balancing machine and bunker was logical. The safety of our employees, along with the assurance that every centrifuge we build and service is balanced correctly, was well worth the added expense.” (more…)

May 5-11 is National Small Business Week!

Since 1963, National Small Business Week has celebrated small business for helping to grow the economy, create jobs, and foster innovation.

America’s 30 million small businesses are central to our economy and our communities. Their courageous innovation makes our cities and towns vibrant places to live, work, and raise families. Small businesses employ almost 59 million workers, more than one-third of our country’s labor force. These companies foster environments that reward problem solving and accountability, enabling workers to develop skills and valuable hands-on experience that propel their careers.

The success of our small businesses depends on leadership and vision from all perspectives and backgrounds. Approximately 10 million American small businesses are women-owned; 29 percent are minority-owned; and nearly 10 percent are veteran-owned.

Small business owners create jobs, foster innovation, and make our community unique. We encourage everyone in the Kenosha Area to support small businesses and shop local!
