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.
