Ascension committed to St. Joseph Hospital for the long haul

The announcement by Ascension that it will preserve the Wheaton Franciscan-St. Joseph Campus Hospital, the only hospital in Sherman Park and a strong and stabilizing partner in the neighborhood, is absolutely great news. I want to take this time to publicly thank them.

As one of the only safety-net hospitals in the city, St. Joseph’s future was unclear for some time. So many of my constituents were born at St. Joseph’s and so many more have been healed there. The loss of the hospital would have been devastating to the Sherman Park community. Ascension has consistently demonstrated a stakeholder and strong neighbor position to the area and securing the future of St. Joseph’s only adds to their commitment.

Through optimizing care at their multiple hospitals in Milwaukee, Ascension has provided a great service not only to the Sherman Park community, but to the entire City of Milwaukee.

Ascension has reaffirmed its support for the Sherman Park neighborhood and I look forward to many more years of partnership.
