The Hospital

Waupun Memorial Hospital is a 25-bed hospital, which provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient services to Waupun and surrounding rural areas. The hospital was dedicated in 1951 as a tribute to veterans in both world wars and to serve the needs of the city of Waupun and its surrounding areas.

Waupun Memorial Hospital features a two-story provider clinic, consolidating all its provider services into one facility with a direct connection to the larger resources of the hospital.

A state-of-the-art surgery area features three high-tech operating rooms, an endoscopy procedure room (for procedures like colonoscopies), 11 pre/postoperative patient rooms, four post anesthesia recovery rooms and centralized sterile processing area. It also includes a private consultation and family waiting area with a separate vending/dining room.

Waupun Memorial Hospital’s staff of associates and volunteers is dedicated to providing services in the areas of laboratory, cardiopulmonary, rehabilitation, radiology, ultrasound, MRI, surgical, emergency, outpatient dialysis, medical/surgical services, intensive care, obstetrics, pain medicine, ambulatory Infusion and anticoagulant services.

The Community

Waupun is nestled on the southern branch of the Rock River.  Small town charm and a strong sense of community abound in this city of just over 11,000 people.  Founded in 1839 by Seymour Wilcox, the first settler along the Rock River, the name Waupun comes from the Ojibwe word “Waubun” which means “dawn of day.”  The “b” became a “p” when the City’s name was commissioned in 1840 and a spelling error was made.  Today the area is known for its rich agricultural land, expanding industrial presence, commitment to quality schools, and an array of outdoor recreational opportunities that include the northern access points of the Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. Waupun is centrally located and is within a one-hour drive of three major cities of Milwaukee, Madison and Appleton, offering the accommodations of larger cities with a strong sense of local community.

Known as the City of Sculpture, Waupun is home to one of the largest collections of outdoor sculptures per capita in the United States many which were gifted to the city by Waupun Industrialist Clarence Shaler. The collection includes the world-renown End of the Trail sculpture by James Earl Frasier that depicts the plight of Native Americans.  Regular live events bring both music and theatre venues to Waupun’s Historic City Hall Auditorium, a building known for its old-world charm and incredible acoustics.

Waupun Memorial Hospital is an Equal Opportunity Employer and Affirmative Action Employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
