American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Ascension Columbia St. Mary's Hospital Milwaukee

Annual Case Load

Columbia St. Mary’s (CSM) healthcare system provides high-quality services and programs with equal attention to the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of health. We make a significant difference in the health and lives of people and the community, with special concern for those who are vulnerable. Our calling is deeply rooted. We care for people and families in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, and Sheboygan counties, which we have served for almost 165 years. The CSM Cancer Center has two primary locations, one in Milwaukee and one in Mequon. A “destination of choice” for cancer patients throughout southeastern Wisconsin, the center provides a multi-disciplinary approach, highly trained and experienced specialists, clinical trials, screenings, community education, and a wide range of support services. For more than five years, in partnership with the National Cancer Institute, CSM served as a site for the National Cancer Institute's Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP). The partnership enabled CSM to bring the latest scientific advances and the highest level of innovative and integrated, multi-specialty care to a larger population of cancer patients, especially those who are underserved. We continue to greatly increase the number of underserved people screened for cancer, bring clinical trials to them, and launch services that help patients navigate through their treatment networks.
