Ashland, Wisconsin is nestled on the south shore of the greatest of the Great Lakes … Lake Superior. Ashland is the “Historic Mural Capital of Wisconsin” with over 16 original life-sized murals painted on buildings throughout the downtown area. Ashland is the regional shopping hub with a vibrant downtown. Ashland is home to Northland College, a private four-year, liberal arts college; Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College; and Memorial Medical Center, a regional hospital with three supporting clinics joined by numerous specialty professional service businesses.

In 2016, The new Northwest Wisconsin Cancer Center opened.  Memorial Medical Center and Essentia Health collaborated to provide greater cancer treatment for Ashland and the surrounding region. The Northwest Wisconsin Cancer Center provides comprehensive cancer care, including:

NWCC allows area cancer patients to receive the same services provided at larger, regional cancer centers right here in Ashland. Starting in June, this will include radiation therapy, via a $4 million state-of-the-art Varian TrueBeam Linear Accelerator.
