History of Franciscan Healthcare

In 1995, Franciscan Health System, Skemp Clinic and the Mayo Clinic merged to create Franciscan Skemp Healthcare - Mayo Health System in La Crosse. This partnership also includes sites in the following communities: Arcadia, Sparta, Tomah, Onalaska, Holmen, Caledonia, La Crescent, Prairie du Chien, and Waukon.

In May 2011, all health system locations adopted the common name of Mayo Clinic Health System. To reflect our dual sponsorship, all former Franciscan Skemp locations became known as Mayo Clinic Health System Franciscan Healthcare.
