Waukesha-based ProHealth Care is joining the recently announced statewide network that includes Aspirus, Aurora Health Care, Bellin Health, Gundersen Health System, ThedaCare and UW Health.
“Our promise to our patients and the communities we serve is to deliver the best care possible,” said Susan Edwards, chief executive officer of ProHealth Care. “In this partnership we have found a group of like-minded health systems, who are also committed to improving health care for everyone. We are excited because we know that when health care quality and efficiency improve, our patients win.”
The new, strategic partnership among seven of Wisconsin’s top-performing health care organizations is intended to make quality, efficient care accessible to approximately 90 percent of Wisconsin residents and their neighbors in parts of Illinois, Iowa, Michigan and Minnesota. The members have the same electronic health record platforms, and offer patients access to 47 hospitals and over 6,000 physicians.
“The ProHealth Care team is an exciting fit with our organization, dedicated to the same principles of high-quality, value-based health care that defines each of our founding organizations,” said Greg Devine, president and chief executive officer of the partnership. “We welcome ProHealth to our efforts to build a new standard for health care for our patients and our communities.”
The partnership is also open to expanding its membership to include other health organizations that have a demonstrated record of delivering quality, value-based care in the future.
The ProHealth family includes Waukesha Memorial Hospital, Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital, the Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin, ProHealth Care Medical Associates clinics, AngelsGrace Hospice, home care and hospice services, West Wood Health & Fitness Center and Regency Senior Communities.
