A Passion For Patient Care: In Memory of Ralph J. Huiras 


A Passion For Patient Care: In Memory of Ralph Huiras


For the past 15 years, the Huiras Family Ozaukee Community Health Clinic, a volunteer-based clinic, has been serving the underinsured and uninsured.

The clinic was made possible by the generosity of Ralph Huiras, who saw the need and chose to do something about it. His gift in 1995 established this vital resource to the community. Ralph's care for the community extended even further in 2005, when he made a $1.2 million grant to create the Huiras Center at CSM Ozaukee.

We fondly remember Ralph's vision, kindness and generosity to others.
