Ascension Wisconsin plans to sell seven hospitals, 21 physician clinics and its patient transport services to Wausau, Wis.-based Aspirus Health.

They are Eagle River Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital in Merrill, Howard Young Medical Center in Woodruff, Our Lady of Victory Hospital in Stanley, Sacred Heart Hospital in Tomahawk, St. Mary’s Hospital in Rhinelander and St. Michael's Hospital in Stevens Point.
