About North Central Health Care
North Central Health Care’s roots can be traced back to 1893 with the opening of the Marathon County Asylum for the Insane. Despite the stigma that term carries in some circles, this was a center built to feel like home and provide people with the compassionate care they needed. In 1910, the Marathon County Home and Hospital began providing care for people specifically to treat tuberculosis. In 1916, Rib View Sanitarium began providing the first forms of nursing home care for the community. The organization that would go on to create North Central Health Care played a prominent role in the creation of all of these institutions.
