Healthcare

A tradition of superior health service, from caring professionals - one more reason why the Manitowoc/Two Rivers area is the perfect place to call home. Rehabilitation services, sleep disorder specialists, cancer care and more, extend medical services to cover nearly every field. Major medical centers offer leading-edge technology and the most up-to-date procedures, to ensure that citizens have access to excellent health care.

Since Holy Family Memorial opened in 1899, the facility has been and continues to be the largest provider of health care services in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, Holy Family Hospital has evolved into Holy Family Memorial -- a comprehensive health care network made up of highly qualified health professionals who are dedicated to providing quality medical care to the residents of Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.

Holy Family Memorial's expanding health care network includes more than 1300 employees. Competence, courtesy and compassion are key elements at the medical center, physician clinics, Wolfe-Snyder Drug and North End Drug & Home Medical Services, Woodland Clinic Pharmacy, Nutrition Plus & Diabetes Center, Rehab Plus, Unified Ambulance & Care Van, Work Health Options, Employee Assistance Program, and in all other programs.

Continuing the tradition of Two Rivers Community Hospital, Aurora Health Care constructed Aurora Medical Center on Memorial Drive between Manitowoc and Two Rivers. Aurora will continue to use Two Rivers Community Hospital for a variety of non-acute services, including Hamilton Memorial Home, a long-term facility adjacent to the hospital.

Twenty-four hour walk-in care is available for non-emergency needs, as is medical care for work-related injuries, also on a 24-hour basis.
