Ministry Door County Medical Center has announced plans to transition from its affiliation with Ascension Wisconsin/Ministry Health Care to a new organizational structure. The move will allow the Sturgeon Bay hospital and clinic to operate a locally led and controlled hospital in partnership with the Hospital Sisters Health System(HSHS) with the intent to remain catholic. A letter of intent has been signed for HSHS to enter into a minority interest affiliation with Ministry Door County Medical Center that will permit the two organizations to work as partners in the delivery of high quality, compassionate healthcare to the residents of Sturgeon Bay and northeast Wisconsin. Ministry Door County Medical Center is a 25-bed acute-carer hospital and outpatient medical center that offers a full range of services and specialties. Its staff includes more than 175 physicians who offer care at five locations in Door and Kewaunee Counties.
