Door County Medical Center Experiences

Top-notch medical care is often equated with the nation's urban centers, and it is undoubtedly true that some of the finest healthcare and research facilities in the world are located in America's cities. What is also true is that some of the best hospitals can be found in smaller communities throughout America.

Door County Medical Center
Door County Medical Center is proud to be one of these top-notch facilities. Over the last five years, DCMC has been recognized by multiple healthcare organizations for the quality of its care and facilities, and received numerous distinctions. Recent honors include:

  • 5-star designations in both 2017 and 2018 by national healthcare research leader Professional Research Consultants, Inc. (PRC)
  • PRC's highest honor—The Award of Distinction—in 2019
  • 5-stars designation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), in 2018, 2019, and 2020, placing DCMC in the top 9% of hospitals nationwide.

With over 175 physicians serving on the medical staff, DCMC is well known as a leader in health and wellness in the Door and Kewaunee counties, providing a wide range of specialties, which include primary care, the Women's and Children's Center, the Door Orthopedic Center, the Door County Cancer Center, the Heartburn & Reflux Center of Door County, a birthing center, a skilled nursing facility and a rehabilitation services department.

However, statistics and facts only sketch a partial image of DCMC's expert care. What's most important is you, the patient—your outcome and your satisfaction. At DCMC we always put the patient first in everything we do. The following stories illustrate that most important aspect of our philosophy—they help paint a more complete picture of the great care that DCMC provides to the Door and Kewaunee County communities—and show that you don't need to travel to a major American city to receive great care.
