On Dec. 23, 1916, six founding physicians completed articles of incorporation for their medical group practice in Marshfield. Marshfield Clinic has grown to be a fully integrated health care system providing clinical and hospital care in more than 50 communities, a health plan, dental care, education for the next generation of health care professionals, health information technology, research, laboratory services, and food testing.
“Our six founding physicians believed patient care, research, and education were important, and we still follow that vision today,” said MCHS CEO Dr. Susan Turney. “If our founders saw where we are today, they would be very proud of how much Marshfield Clinic has accomplished in 100 years.”
MCHS will host activities and educational opportunities throughout 2016 in the communities it serves. Many Marshfield Clinic providers, researchers, and employees will return to Marshfield during Legacy Week, Oct. 10-14, to participate in education, historical, and research forums as well as social events.
