Aspirus Langlade Hospital and Clinic Celebrates Catholic Health Care Week
FROM ASPIRUS HEALTH
Aspirus Langlade Hospital team members are celebrating the fourth annual Catholic Health Care Week October 2-8. October marks the time of year when Hôtel Dieu, the first Catholic hospital in Canada, opened its doors.
“This year’s theme “Building Bridges” focuses on our commitment as Catholic health care to reach out, create connections, welcome all, address gaps and work collaboratively to improve the health and wellbeing of all—especially those most vulnerable in our society” said Aspirus Langlade Hospital President Sherry Bunten.
Aspirus Langlade’s Catholic identity is grounded in a core belief that it is a privilege to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those they serve, offering comfort, healing, and love. Each day a dedicated team work to build bridges of trust and healing with individuals, families, communities, and partners in care. As innovators, advocates, and strong partners across our health care system, those at Aspirus in Antigo have a passion for justice and are driven to make the world a better place, where everyone finds belonging, dignity and worth.
The week-long celebration is an opportunity to reflect on the bridge-building mission and how work with partners in the Catholic community, health system and beyond contribute to and help shape an ever-evolving health system and a legacy of innovation and ethical reflection.
“It is so important to keep our Catholic identity in front of us and assure it lives on” said Sister Dolores Demulling.
As a Catholic health organization, Aspirus Langlade is united in a 400-year healing mission and are inspired by a calling to care for all with compassion and humanity—body, mind, and spirit.
