Who we are
|We're all caregivers|
|Our Board of Directors|
At Aurora Health Care, helping people live well is what drives us - it's our purpose and what we do every day. Living well can mean many things; from treatment or cure, to prevention and even end-of-life care. Our purpose is about caring and hope.
Our integration as a not-for-profit system began in 1984 when two long-standing Milwaukee hospitals, St. Luke's Medical Center and Good Samaritan Medical Center, affiliated to become Aurora Health Care. With a single vision of finding better ways to provide health care, our new organization grew as other hospitals, medical groups and health care providers who shared our vision joined us.
We've always believed that better health care leads to stronger communities. We're an integral part of the communities we serve. We partner with schools and universities to prepare the next generation of health care providers. Aurora supports free clinics and provides year-round community education. We're implementing green technologies to help protect the environment. And we work with other health care leaders and elected officials to improve care and influence meaningful health care reform.
We're governed by a community board of directors; business and community leaders who offer their expertise and resources to help guide our work today and prepare us for the future. As an employer, we believe in being a best place to work. By putting our patients at the center of all we do, we encourage our caregivers to stay focused on our top priority and ensure the best environment for those who visit us and those who work here.
