ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Appleton, formerly Appleton Medical Center (1984-2015),[1] and Appleton Memorial Hospital (1958-1984), serves the northern side of the city of Appleton, Wisconsin. The hospital was chartered by the State of Wisconsin in 1949.[2] After a 12-year fundraising effort, Appleton Memorial Hospital opened in 1958.[3] The hospital was renamed Appleton Medical Center in 1984. In 1987, this hospital merged financially with ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah to form the Novus Health Group, now called ThedaCare.

Possible replacement[edit]

ThedaCare is currently in the process of seeking the closure of the hospital along with ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah. They would then build a brand new mega-hospital to serve the Fox Cities. A representative of the company stated that investing in a new hospital would make more sense than investing in the remodeling of both hospitals. The representative also said that newer medical procedures, bring the need for different facilities. ThedaCare cited the need for a larger Intensive care unit to cope with the increased demand for beds in the unit.[4]
