St. Elizabeth Hospital, officially Ascension NE Wisconsin St. Elizabeth Hospital, is a hospital founded in 1899 that serves the south side of Appleton, in Outagamie County, Wisconsin. Its emergency department is a level III trauma center.[1]


St. Elizabeth Hospital was founded at the behest of Bishop Sebastian Gebhard Messmer of Green Bay. Four women from the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary in St. Louis came to Appleton. The hospital the four women founded began in 1899 in an 11-room wooden house. It quickly outgrew that location. New land was purchased and a larger brick building on that site constructed in 1900.[2]


St. Elizabeth Hospital associated with Oshkosh's Mercy Medical Center in 1995 to form the Affinity Health System,[3] which later incorporated Calumet Medical Center in 1998.[4]

The hospitals and clinics of Affinity Health System were absorbed by and began using the Ascension name beginning September 20, 2016.[5]
