Our Community Hospitals

Our community hospitals provides care to thousands of your Northwoods neighbors.

Howard Young Medical Center

HYMC was preceded by Lakeland Memorial Hospital, which was established in the 1950s, was built in 1977 and has always focused its efforts on providing the exceptional care that people need, when they need it, where they need it, in addition to being a healthcare partner – not just a provider – to our neighbors, near and far.

HYMC is an acute care facility that provides a level of care not commonly found in a typical rural hospital. Specially trained physicians, nurses and technical personnel are dedicated to caring for the health and wellness of those in our communities. Hospitalists oversee the care of general medical surgical patients, as well as those cared for in our intensive care and transitional care units. Our birthing center prides itself on offering a family-centered approach to labor and delivery in a relaxing, home-like environment.

Ascension Eagle River Hospital

AERH was built in the 1950's by the community as a vital place of healing. As the population grew, the potential for serious accidents grew and the demand for medical services continued to rise. Concerned citizens realized the more time patients spent on the highway traveling to distant hospitals the less time they spent in the care of a physician getting well.

AERH offers an advanced Emergency Department including two trauma rooms and three general-purpose examination rooms with flexibility to do specialized exams, suturing and casting.
