About Us

 

HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital strives for a continuous review and improvement in all of its activities in all areas. In its concern to integrate services with the total health care of the community, HSHS St. Nicholas recognizes its responsibility to participate in community-wide planning, to be responsive to the health needs of the community, to cooperate with others working to alleviate pain and suffering, and to assist in the education of all persons concerning basic health needs. HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission

We encourage all who share in the efforts of the Hospital to make themselves a part of the Franciscan ideal of compassionate care and to render service in such a way as to assert dignity and reverence for others. In keeping with these beliefs, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital abides by the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Healthcare Services.

Community Health Needs

 

At HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital, programs and services are built to serve community needs while staying true to our founding Sisters’ mission, vision and values. In this spirit, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital participates in community health needs assessments with the objective of seeking community input to identify and prioritize health issues that the hospital is best positioned to address in collaboration with the community. Actions are taken to address these needs and are reported on annually.

In this annual report, we celebrate our accomplishments and give thanks for our Franciscan values that inspire and guide us daily.

2018 Community Benefit Report

Community Health Improvement Process (CHIP)

 

HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital has a long history of collaborating with the Sheboygan County Public Health Department planning for our community‘s future health needs. We worked with the Sheboygan County Health Department to identify Sheboygan County’s top health issues through the Community Health Improvement Process (CHIP). Representatives of HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital served on both the steering committee for this project and the Community Partner meetings where the priorities were identified. Action plans were developed by identifying community strengths, existing resources, and gaps.

Brian's Story

“I was told that I would be in good hands here in Sheboygan, and it felt good knowing that I wouldn’t have to travel to Milwaukee or somewhere farther away, ” said Brian. “Treatment can make you tired and weak, and it was nice to be so close to home.”
