About Aurora Health Care

Our commitment

Aurora Health Care, a community-owned, not-for-profit Wisconsin health care system, strives to promote health, prevent illness, and provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment whenever and wherever we can best meet people's individual and family needs.

We are committed to improving the quality of health care and health outcomes for people through the rapid and broad application of current knowledge. We are also engaged in the education of health care professionals and the ongoing quest for new knowledge through medical research in order to contribute to the quality of health care in the future.

Because we recognize the personal nature of health care services, we are committed to creating environments that meet the diverse physical, emotional, spiritual, social and economic needs of our patients and clients, as well as the people who serve them.

We are concerned with the overall welfare of our communities and we recognize that there are limits to the resources people can invest in health care. Working together, the people of Aurora are determined not only to provide services of the highest quality, but also to make those services affordable and accessible to every person in every community we serve.
