Aurora Health Care closing clinic in northern Door County – Milwaukee Business Journal – The Business Journals

November 13, 2022

Aurora Health Care will close its clinic in northern Door County tourism hub Sister Bay as local competitor Door County Medical Center prepares to open a large clinic in the same community.
Aurora Health Care, which is owned by Advocate Aurora Health, cited “inconsistent patient volumes” as the reason the clinic will close effective Dec. 1. The statement said the Sister Bay location will consolidate with the Aurora Health Center in Sturgeon Bay, which is a 30-mile drive south from the Sister Bay clinic.
“We will continue to serve the Door County community at our Sturgeon Bay location and by virtual health services through our LiveWell app,” Aurora Health Care said via email.
The Aurora Health Care hospital nearest to Door County is Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.
Aurora Health Care bought the Sister Bay clinic in 2005, according to the Door County Pulse news site.
Meanwhile, Door County Medical Center is proceeding with construction of a clinic and rehab facility on Wisconsin Highway 57. The new space also will integrate behavioral health and telehealth services.
The project timeline initially called for completion by this month, but the Door County Pulse reported the clinic will open in spring 2023.
Door County Medical Center runs a hospital in Sturgeon Bay in partnership with Hospital Sisters Health System, which owns Prevea Health. Door County Medical Center began the partnership in 2016 with Hospital Sisters Health System, which is based in Springfield, Illinois.
Also in 2016, Ascension Wisconsin announced its Ministry Health Care Unit was transitioning its stake in the Door County Medical Center hospital to Hospital Sisters Health System.
