We are transformation

Dream. Discover. Transform. They are the elements that inspire our exceptional physicians and clinicians to ask questions, yearn to learn more, and strive to find better solutions. Our 2018 annual Aurora Gala focuses on this spirit of innovation and the spark which drives Aurora’s innovators to go the extra mile, to see beyond the traditional walls of patient care and dare to find new ways to advance care and help more people live well.

We are pleased to announce Dan and Susie Minahan of Milwaukee will serve as our honorary chairs for the 2018 Aurora Gala. We will also recognize longtime Aurora Health Care supporter Mrs. Judy Gardetto for her family’s continued support and dedication to Aurora Health Care.
