Sturgeon Bay, WI. As Wisconsin moves forward in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Door County Medical Center (DCMC) is taking steps to make health care services more accessible while maintaining safety and meeting our patients’ needs.
The status of DCMC medical services is as follows:
Elective Surgeries: DCMC has worked with other regional hospitals to follow specific guidelines for resuming elective procedures for our community.

- DCMC Clinic and Rehabilitation Services: Clinicians and rehab specialists are available for patients at all locations, especially for patients needing to manage health conditions. Patients can expect the following adjustments:
- Alternatives to In-Person Visits: For the safety of all, consider using an alternative means of communication for non-emergency consultations. DCMC staff will listen to your concerns and work to get you needed services.
