Supporting Finley Hospital since 1889
The women of Sunshine Circle have been raising funds for Finley Hospital since 1889. In addition to operating and staffing the Sunshine Gift Shop seven days a week, this all-volunteer group organizes fundraising projects and events throughout the year to help maintain important programs that ultimately benefit the entire Dubuque area. These programs and supported facilities include the Wendt Regional Cancer Center, Kehl Diabetes Center, as well as the patients at UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital.
All proceeds from Sunshine Circle's efforts benefit patient care needs at our compassionate and caring community called Finley Hospital.

Projects Funded by the Sunshine Circle
UnityPoint Health - Pediatric Therapy Center
The Pediatric Therapy Center opened in the Fall of 2020 and is now welcoming the youngest of patients to its new location. The improved and relocated 6,200-square foot center now proudly calls the third floor of UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital Westmark Outpatient Rehab its home.
The facility provides dedicated space for physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapies for children from birth to 21 years of age. The $1,245,000 project cost was provided solely by generous supporters, including a $200,000 gift from the Sunshine Circle to establish the Play Area within the new facility.
"Having a facility that mirrors the high level of care our children receive is a dream come true," Amy Brooner, Manager of Therapy Services said.
Finley's intensive therapy programs provide therapy to help bridge the gap from disabilities to abilities so children can become independent and engage in our communities during their childhood and into adulthood.
Thank you to our many donors and families for supporting this 100% donor funded project!
