The center achieved outstanding clinical outcomes for twelve consecutive months, including a patient satisfaction rating higher than 92 percent. There were 601 centers eligible for the award and 367 achieved the honor.

“We’re proud and honored to accept this designation again for healing our patients at an exceptional rate,” said John Wagner, president and CEO of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital. “With our skilled colleagues and state-of-the-art technology, we’re grateful to provide this high-level care in the Chippewa Valley.”

Most importantly, they are passionate about what they do. They are unmatched in the care and compassion they provide to our patients.”
