About Us

Door County Medical Center (DCMC) is an award-winning critical access hospital located in Door County, Wisconsin. For more than 70 years, DCMC has been the leader in health and wellness for Door and Kewaunee counties. Our hospital and outpatient medical center provide a wide range of specialties, including the Women’s and Children’s Center, the Bone and Joint Center of Door County, the Door County Cancer Center, a skilled nursing facility, and a rehabilitation services department. With its main campus in Sturgeon Bay and satellite clinics and rehabilitation services facilities in four smaller communities, DCMC provides expert care, close to home. More than 175 physicians serve on the medical staff.

To continue our promise of putting patients first in everything we do, Door County Medical Center began a partnership with Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) in 2016.  This new partnership allows us to continue to grow our ogranization, offer patients increased access to specialists and provide the same high level of care for which we are recognized.  As a Catholic-based health care system, HSHS/Prevea shares our organization's strong commitment to serving the health care needs of our entire community, especially the poor.  Since 2016, our organizations have worked as partners in the delivery of high quality, compassionate health care to the residents of Door County and northeast Wisconsin.  Door County Medical Center remains responsive to the needs of the community and continue to support partnerships that benefit community health.

DCMC collaborates with local organizations to address the health needs of the community, living up to its mission to improve the health and well-being of all people, especially the poor. DCMC’s myriad community involvements – including support for silent sporting events, arts and music events, afterschool programs, and youth sports – make the hospital the leader in community wellness for all ages. DCMC also supports school nursing programs in local public schools, as well as occupational and physical therapy and sports medicine, and partners with local employers through occupational health services and the Personal Health Team Program.

Our Mission:
To further the healing ministry of Jesus Christ by improving the health and well-being of our community, especially the poor.

Community Engagement

LEAP: The Human Kindness Project

LEAP (Learning to Empower and Appreciate all People) expands on a violence-free message and challenges prevailing attitudes towards acceptance and social injustice.  The performance is dedicated to encouraging positive thinking, passion, and person growth through movement and the art of dance, spoken word, songs, visual arts and multimedia imagery.  By advocating a message of acceptance and tolerance, the project creates a platform that empowers young artists with the knowledge , compassion and understanding necessary to create works that address the most pressing issues of today’s youth.
