About Us

In south Milwaukee, Ascension St. Francis Hospital provides compassionate primary and specialty medical care, including emergency and urgent care.

With an unusually large medical staff of over 700 doctors, Ascension St. Francis Hospital provides southeastern Wisconsin with a wide variety of healthcare services for all ages, yet with the warm, friendly atmosphere of a small community hospital. Our ER is here 24/7 with doctors and surgeons treating all types of medical emergencies, including chest pain and early intervention for strokes and heart attacks. Walk-in urgent care services are available during extended hours if you have minor medical issues.

Our primary care and specialty doctors and nurse practitioners, all committed to your full health and well-being, meet a wide variety of healthcare needs. Our general surgeons are skilled in a full range of surgical procedures, including minimally invasive techniques.

We provide advanced care and treatment to children and adults with brain, spine and nervous system conditions, including treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS). For cancer care, our medical, radiation and surgical oncologists use targeted treatments and supportive care to help you take control of your health.

As an Accredited Chest Pain Center and Certified Stroke Center, we seek to prevent heart attacks and stroke, but be assured, our heart care doctors and surgeons provide advanced heart care treatments when you need them.

For women, we offer doctors who specialize in women's health, including breast, pelvic and heart health.  At the Birthing Center, our maternity care team helps you create a memorable experience.

We believe it is just as important to care for the  mind and spirit as it is to care for the body. Our behavioral and mental health care team of four psychiatrists offers child/family counseling, psychology and psychotherapy services; neuropsychology testing and services; addiction Partial Hospitalization and Day Treatment programming; and geriatric inpatient, outpatient and intensive outpatient programming. If you or a loved one has trouble coping with the stresses of life, remember you are not alone.

Ascension St. Francis Hospital is committed to delivering high-quality, cost-effective care to all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable, regardless of their ability to pay. We accept a wide variety of insurance plans and will work with you to identify other financial options. We are also privileged to accept Veterans Choice. If you are a veteran experiencing difficulty accessing the VA for care, contact us. We are honored to provide the care you deserve.
