Aurora Health Care

Continuing the tradition of Two Rivers Community Hospital, Aurora Health Care constructed Aurora Medical Center on Memorial Drive between Manitowoc and Two Rivers. Aurora will continue to use Two Rivers Community Hospital for a variety of non-acute services, including Hamilton Memorial Home, a long-term facility adjacent to the hospital.

The new facility offers leading-edge diagnostic and registration services, state-of-the-art rehabilitation center, modern surgical and laboratory services, as well as pediatric and maternity suites. Twenty-four hour walk-in care is available for non-emergency needs, as is medical care for work-related injuries, also on a 24-hour basis.

Among the quality services offered by Aurora are: family practice, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pediatrics, urology, surgery, pulmonology, cardiology, ear-nose-throat, neuro-surgery.

The four-floor center includes a complete pediatrics unit, obstetrical service and Women’s Health Center designed to encourage family involvement in the birth process.

The all new Aurora Medical Center, a high-tech, patient-focused facility, offers the latest in patient comfort and care. Patient rooms are private and spacious, many offering beautiful views of Lake Michigan.

Aurora Medical Center, with its glass atrium, four stories and 176,000 square feet of dedicated space, represents the next generation of health care. The center will be the hub of Aurora facilities in Manitowoc County.
