Who We Are

Mission, Vision, Values


Who we are and what we value.

Serving you with excellence.


What we want to become. Our future/ultimate goal. 

To be the best community hospital in the nation.


All those associated with Black River Memorial Hospital
embrace the following values:





Black River Memorial Hospital opened in 1968 through funding from three sources:

  • A grant of federal funds from the Hill Burton Program
  • A bond from the city of Black River Falls
  • Donations from more than 2,000 local citizens

The hospital operates independently with no tax dollar support and is led by a board of directors made up of local community leaders.

The hospital offers a full scope of programs and services like Diagnostic Imaging, Surgical Services, OB, Pain Clinic, Rehabilitation, Respiratory Care, Emergency and Urgent Care, Occupational Health, and B-Home, which offers homecare, hospice, and palliative care services, as well as a retail store offering home medical equipment.

Even in a constantly changing healthcare environment, our vision has remained the same: To be the healthcare provider and employer of choice in our service area.

And this is reflected in all that we do.
