Guide To St. Nicholas Hospital > About Us > History
In 1969, the Hospital leadership closed the Anna M. Reiss Home because they believed the institution could not satisfactorily operate both the Hospital and the Home for the Aged within the limited facilities and increasing demands and regulations.
In 1971 St. Nicholas Hospital began a comprehensive review of the Hospital and the needs of the community, which ultimately ended with the recommendation for the construction of a new facility, which would provide all the services then offered, plus other additional services that will become commonplace and standard for any general, acute care facility.
Groundbreaking for the new facility took place in the spring of 1976 on its present 24-acre site on Sheboygans west side. The transfer of patients and staff to the new St. Nicholas Hospital occurred in February 1979.
Since that time, the St. Nicholas Hospital grounds have become a medical campus housing medical office buildings for many of the Physicians' Health Network and Prevea Health Network physicians.
