In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Wisconsin chose to develop a series of county hospitals and two state hospitals. In 1898, Trempealeau County officials made a decision to build a county “asylum” and start a farm to provide service to mentally ill, intellectually disabled, and alcohol and drug dependent persons. This was the beginning of what is known today as the Trempealeau County Health Care Center system.
Time has allowed TCHCC to help thousands of people, to answer community and state needs, to be a place of safety for persons with serious mental illness, intellectual intellectual needs, or behavior struggles. We have answered the call to develop new, innovative programs and better treatment, both inpatient and community-based care. We strive to improve and look to a future of continued effective services.
Our programs, environment and staff expertise help enhance the positive self-image of individuals, and provide empowerment, respect and dignity. An interdisciplinary team is used to deliver comprehensive system of care that enables individuals to attain the greatest quality of life.
TCHCC is guided in it’s operations by a five member Board of Trustees and employs about 350 people. Each department within the organization contributes to the high level of specialized care offered those staying in the TCHCC system. Our goal, no matter the setting, is to specialize plans of care that maximize living life to its fullest.
