We were founded in 1899 with a mission to serve our community’s unique needs. As health care has evolved—and as our community has grown—so have we. But our mission remains the same.

We’re committed to providing the right care, in the right setting, for the right outcomes.

Today, we’re recognized as the leader and largest provider of health care services in Manitowoc County. Our network of more than 830 health care professionals proudly provides our community with top quality, personalized care.

Our History

Rooted in the Franciscan tradition of hospitality and the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, Holy Family Memorial has a rich heritage of putting our community first. When the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity were approached by local clergy and community leaders over a century ago to start a hospital to care for the health needs of our growing community, they answered the call. And we’ve been proudly serving our community ever since.

Doing what’s right. Innovative care for our community.
