Health Services That Grow With the Community

North Central Health Care’s roots can be traced back to 1893 with the opening of the Marathon County Asylum for the Insane. Despite the stigma that term carries in some circles, this was a center built to feel like home and provide people with the compassionate care they needed. In 1910, the Marathon County Home and Hospital began providing care for people specifically to treat tuberculosis. In 1916, Rib View Sanitarium began providing the first forms of nursing home care for the community. The organization that would go on to create North Central Health Care played a prominent role in the creation of all of these institutions.history

North Central Health Care was formed in 1972 as a partnership between Marathon, Lincoln, and Langlade Counties. This marked the first formation of a multi-county system of care. As we approach 50 years of care as North Central Health Care, we have continually evolved to meet the needs of a constantly changing and diverse community.
