Aspirus Family House – The Aspirus Family House offers a safe, affordable place to stay for patients and families travelling to Wausau for emergency or specialized care.

With philanthropic support, we can ensure this home-away-from home is available to all in need.

You can help patients and families who must travel to Wausau for specialty care or have a loved one in medical crisis and need help with a safe, affordable, healing place to stay.

Children’s Literacy Prescription Program – Aspirus Health supports early children’s literacy, offering books to children age 0 to 5 in our clinics across the health system. Your gifts to support Children’s Literacy help build a strong educational base that empowers children to learn and succeed, develop critical life and critical thinking skills. Gifts also help foster a joy of reading, and build more equitable communities. Books are provided to children during well-child visits and are also used as an opportunity for the clinician to gauge progress toward important developmental milestones. 

Heart Care – Aspirus Heart Care is more than a building or place; it’s a union of dedicated, exceptional cardiovascular professionals from multiple disciplines. Making a gift to support heart care can enhance the overall health of our communities. Gifts may be used for new equipment or technology that enhances diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment; patient support services; community outreach; training and education; and other needs.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – The Anya Marie Jackson Level III NICU at Aspirus Wausau Hospital is the region’s only single-family room model for critically ill babies, meaning parents can stay with their baby 24/7 and have an opportunity to bond and participate in their care. Donors play a pivotal role in ensuring the NICU has the resources and technology necessary to provide specialized care to these fragile infants. Supporting the NICU extends beyond the immediate medial needs of the infants, also providing a supportive environment for families facing the emotional and financial challenges that may come with having a critically ill newborn. With your gifts, you are not only investing in the health and well-being of premature infants but fostering hope and resilience in families during a difficult and uncertain time.
