ProHealth Care changes hospital names

ProHealth Care is changing the names of its two acute care hospitals in Waukesha County to help health care consumers more readily connect all of the pieces of the ProHealth system.

For each hospital, the ProHealth name is being added to the legacy hospital name. Waukesha Memorial Hospital becomes ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital, and Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital becomes ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital.

“ProHealth Care offers a fully integrated system of care, meaning that we coordinate patient care across many different services and sites,” said Susan Edwards, chief executive officer. “The name changes will help us better communicate these connections and the benefits for patients.” 

New signs are being erected on the hospital campuses to reflect the name changes.

Both hospitals are integral to the communities they serve. ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital, which opened in 1914, is a 400-bed tertiary center, offering advanced treatment options and specialized services. ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital, a 156-bed acute care hospital, opened in 1953.

More than 5,700 physicians and staff work to deliver safe, efficient and effective care at the Waukesha and Oconomowoc hospitals and across other ProHealth sites. ProHealth Care’s service area extends throughout Waukesha County and into several adjoining counties.

In addition to hospital care, ProHealth Care offers a wide array of services in clinics, businesses, schools and homes throughout the area. The people of ProHealth Care work in innovative ways to deliver excellent care and an outstanding patient experience. ProHealth patients benefit from advanced diagnostics and the latest treatment options.
