Waupun Memorial Hospital is a 25-bed hospital, which provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient services to Waupun and surrounding rural areas.

Waupun Memorial Hospital features a two-story provider clinic, consolidating all its provider services into one facility with a direct connection to the larger resources of the hospital.
A state-of-the-art surgery area features three high-tech operating rooms, an endoscopy procedure room (for procedures like colonoscopies), 11 pre/postoperative patient rooms, four post anesthesia recovery rooms and centralized sterile processing area. It also includes a private consultation and family waiting area with a separate vending/dining room.

Waupun is nestled on the southern branch of the Rock River. Small town charm and a strong sense of community abound in this city of just over 11,000 people. Founded in 1839 by Seymour Wilcox, the first settler along the Rock River, the name Waupun comes from the Ojibwe word "Waubun" which means "dawn of day." The "b" became a "p" when the City's name was commissioned in 1840 and a spelling error was made. Today the area is known for its rich agricultural land, expanding industrial presence, commitment to quality schools, and an array of outdoor recreational opportunities that include the northern access points of the Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. Waupun is centrally located and is within a one-hour drive of three major cities of Milwaukee, Madison and Appleton, offering the accommodations of larger cities with a strong sense of local community.
Known as the City of Sculpture, Waupun is home to one of the largest collections of outdoor sculptures per capita in the United States many which were gifted to the city by Waupun Industrialist Clarence Shaler. The collection includes the world-renown End of the Trail sculpture by James Earl Frasier that depicts the plight of Native Americans. Regular live events bring both music and theatre venues to Waupun's Historic City Hall Auditorium, a building known for its old-world charm and incredible acoustics.

SSM Health has announced that it is joining with the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA) in a new initiative to confront racism by achieving health equity. SSM Health joins 22 of the nation’s largest Catholic health care systems committed to confronting systemic racism by prioritizing equity in response to COVID-19; enacting change across their own health care systems by examining and changing hiring, promotion and retention practices to ensure diversity and inclusion; forming stronger partnerships with communities of color to improve health outcomes; and leveraging their united and powerful voice to advocate for policy changes that address the root causes of racism and social injustice.
“This past year has further demonstrated the important and influential role that health care systems can and should play in shaping local communities and society at large,” Joe Hodges, Regional President, SSM Health in Oklahoma. “SSM Health is proud to join this pledge and will continue taking bold steps to ensure better health for all – particularly those who are economically, physically and socially marginalized.”
Collectively, SSM Health and the other Catholic health organizations that have signed the pledge employ nearly a half million people across 46 states and the District of Columbia, and care for almost four million patients annually.
Recognizing that racism is an affront to the core values of Catholic social teaching, CHA members joined in solidarity to promote the common good and seek justice by being actively anti-racist and accountable in effecting positive change in the communities we serve.
Four focus areas
Act for COVID-19 equity: Members commit to ensuring that testing for COVID-19 is available and accessible in minority communities and that new treatments are distributed and used equitably as they become available. Members will also work for prioritization of vaccinations for those individuals and families at higher risk — elder populations and communities of color, including Native American communities.
Enact change across our own health systems: Members are examining how their organizations recruit, hire, promote and retain employees; how they conduct business operations, including visible diversity and inclusivity at the decision, leadership and governance levels; and how they incentivize and hold our leaders accountable.
Advocate for improved health outcomes for minority communities and populations: Members agree to promote and improve the delivery of culturally competent care and oppose policies that exacerbate or perpetuate economic and social inequities, including such issues as education, housing and criminal justice reform.
Strengthen trust with minority communities: Members will continue to foster, strengthen and sustain authentic relationships based on mutually agreed goals to better understand the unique needs of their communities.
Kaiser and other Catholic health care leaders who have signed the pledge recognize that collectively they are in a unique position to bring about overdue change to policies and practices that have allowed systemic racism and health disparities to continue in the United States.
To hold itself and its members accountable, CHA intends to provide updates on the commitment progress annually.
