OCONTO FALLS - A new owner means a new name for an Oconto County hospital.

Community Memorial Hospital is now known as HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital. On Monday, the hospital officially became part of Hospital Sisters Health System. The 14-hospital system is based in Springfield, Ill., and includes St. Vincent and St. Mary hospitals in Green Bay and St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan.

The hospitals work with Prevea Health across the region. Leaders say the partnership will give people in northern Wisconsin more access to quality health care.
