Our Story

Northwestern Wisconsin’s need for a total healthcare facility became apparent in 1968. Since Ashland’s two existing hospitals, Ashland Community Hospital and Trinity Lutheran Hospital, were in older buildings, they were not easily remodeled or refurbished. Therefore, a new facility was constructed, and Memorial Medical Center opened on October 9, 1972.
