Welcome to Wrangell Medical Center
We are proud to carry on the tradition of caring, quality healthcare that began in Wrangell nearly 90 years ago with the opening of Bishop Rowe Hospital, just down the street from our current location. Though medical care has advanced since the mid 1920's, and our staff and equipment have entered the digital age, our focus on kind, confidential and respectful care of friends, families and neighbors has never changed.

WMC's Long Term Care Facility Earns 5-Star Ranking on Nursing Home Compare
August 2016 - The Center for Medicare Services (CMS) has published new Five-Star rankings on its Nursing Home Compare (NHC) website. Wrangell Medical Center’s Long Term Care facility has received a Five-Star overall rating from CMS based on our most recent inspection by Medicare.
According to the website, “Nursing Home Compare allows consumers to compare information about nursing homes.” Current ratings reflect new changes, as of April 2016, that require an even greater focus by nursing homes on quality measures. Inspectors look at whether the nursing home meets certain standards and those results are reported at the state and federal level.
