Hospital Sisters Health System and Prevea Health in Wisconsin have finalized a previously announced agreement to join Integrated Health Network of Wisconsin, a clinically integrated network of major health care systems and the Medical College of Wisconsin.
With the addition of HSHS and Prevea Health, Integrated Health Network has grown to include 42 hospitals, 500 clinics and more than 5,000 physicians spanning northern, western, central and eastern Wisconsin.
Integrated Health Network’s other members are Agnesian HealthCare, Columbia St. Mary’s, Froedtert Health, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Ministry Health Care, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare and many independent physician partners.
“The high standards demonstrated by HSHS and Prevea Health make them an excellent addition to IHN as we continue to create a collaborative, statewide network of hospitals, clinics and providers dedicated to offering the kind of health care we all want,” said Cathy Jacobson, IHN board chair and president and chief executive officer of Froedtert Health. “With the addition of HSHS and Prevea Health, more people will benefit from IHN’s goal to provide exceptional health care close to home, by doctors they know and trust, at a cost they can afford.”
Hospital Sisters Health System operates HSHS St. Vincent’s Hospital and HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay; HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital in Oconto Falls; HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan; HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire; and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital and HSHS Medical Group in Chippewa Falls.
Prevea Health, a physician partnership with Hospital Sisters Health System, has more than 300 primary and specialty care providers, 20 health centers and 27 employer-based clinics in the northeastern Wisconsin region. Prevea Health, together with HSHS and Dean Health Plan, jointly own Prevea360 Health Plan, which serves residents of northeast Wisconsin.
