HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Closure Information
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital, and Prevea’s Western Wisconsin health centers are closing. St. Joseph’s Hospital and Sacred Heart will close around the end of the first quarter of 2024 and our Prevea partners on or before April 21, 2024, in Western Wisconsin.
Like many health systems, we have had to grapple with the lingering impacts of the pandemic, the effects of inflation, workforce challenges and other industry-wide trends.
As a result of these persistent operational challenges and after thorough consideration, we have made the difficult yet necessary decision to exit the Western Wisconsin region and focus our efforts on our Eastern Wisconsin and Illinois operations.
We understand this news is concerning, disappointing, and even distressing to some of you. Our team is committed to providing you with information and resources to support the transition of your care.
We want to assure you that we remain dedicated to ensuring you have access to timely, safe, and high-quality care in your community.
If you have questions about your care or upcoming procedures and appointments, as well as any concerns regarding your patient care plan, we encourage you to reach out to (888) 307-7099. In case of an emergency, call 911.
