Appleton: Health Care

The city of Appleton is served by two hospitals with a total of 700 beds—St. Elizabeth Hospital and the Appleton Medical Center (which, along with its regional partner Theda Clark Medical Center, was named one of the nation's top 100 hospitals in 2003 by HCIA-Sachs). There are two walk-in emergency clinics. The Fox Cities rank among the least expensive regions in the United States for hospital and physician care. In 2004 St. Elizabeth Hospital embarked on an ambitious three-phase renovation and expansion plan. St. Elizabeth offers specialized services in cardiac care, behavioral medicine, a center for women and families, extensive rehabilitation facilities, and the Comprehensive Cancer Center. Appleton Medical Center supports the Warner Wellness and Rehabilitation Center, which brings together therapies, cardiac rehabilitation, sports medicine, occupational health, and nutritional services. The hospital also offers magnetic resonance imaging and a linear accelerator. Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah is also home to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
