Dr. Roger C. Rademacher Memorial Scholarship for Clinical Excellence

About the scholarship

This scholarship was established to honor the life of Dr. Roger Rademacher in recognition of his dedicated service to area communities and his passion for rural medicine and rural healthcare.

Dr. Rademacher was a valued member of the active medical staff. Through his 26 years of practice in Prairie du Chien, Dr. Rademacher leaves an outstanding legacy of integrity, trust, and compassion.

The halls of the hospital are filled with stories of his wisdom and skill. Countless rural clinical professionals have benefited from his leadership and expert mentoring. His countless clinical contributions, caring compassionate way and his willingness to grow others will always be remembered.

In the end, it is not his clinical skills, but his humanness that defined this great man. Dr. Rademacher was killed in a traffic accident in January, 2009.
