Divine Savior Healthcare's long history began in 1916 when we were created by the Sisters of the Divine Savior. The community of Portage realized that there was a medical need in their community, so they worked in conjunction with the Sisters of Divine Savior to open St. Savior's Hospital. Since then our name has changed, but our mission has remained the same. Divine Savior Healthcare is proud to ...offer our community a continuum of care. Our organization consists of a hospital, residential facility (Tivoli), clinics (in Portage, Pardeeville and Oxford) and Medically Integrated Wellness Center.
Divine Savior Healthcare is unique because we place the care of the patient, mind, body and soul as our pivotal cornerstone. We offer patients a comprehensive approach to their health care needs by providing a variety of services, including emergency services, assisted living, pediatrics and rehabilitation services. Why do we do this for our community? "Because life is extraordinary."
