Why Meriter is Different

First established in 1898 as Madison General Hospital, Meriter has been a pillar in the Madison area for more than 110 years and is the city's only community hospital. Our goal is not only to treat the disease, but to treat the whole patient by providing service excellence in every aspect of the experience from scheduling an appointment at one of our clinics to attending a seminar on healthy living or enjoying lunch in our hospital cafeteria.

As a nonprofit, Meriter is devoted to making a positive impact far beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics through outreach and awareness, investing tens of millions of dollars in the community each year. Learn more about why 40,000 people apply to join our team each year.
