Integrated Health Network of Wisconsin has expanded into the Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie areas with the addition of the Kenosha-based United Hospital System. The system joined the Brookfield-based clinically integrated network’s Affiliated Network effective Monday.
United Hospital System’s affiliation with IHN adds network options including the Kenosha Medical Center Campus, the St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus and six clinics throughout Kenosha, Pleasant Prairie, western Kenosha County and northern Illinois. The system is affiliated with Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare and has a strong relationship with Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, both equity members of IHN.
“The partnership between United Hospital System and Integrated Health Network of Wisconsin will allow our outstanding team of physicians and professional healthcare workers to provide excellent patient care to individuals and families who have access to the IHN network. This partnership is clearly in the best interest of all parties, most notably our patients,” said Richard Schmidt Jr., United Hospital System’s president, chief executive officer and general counsel.
United Hospital System joined IHN’s Affiliated Network of more than 85 providers who complement resources available through equity network members, offering employers access to additional hospitals (by specialty or geography) and ancillary providers such as chiropractic and skilled nursing facilities.
“IHN’s flexible approach enables tailoring of our network to meet customers’ needs, so we are very pleased to now offer United Hospital System’s facilities and physician providers as options in the Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie areas,” said Kurt Janavitz, CEO of Integrated Health Network. “United Hospital System joins a highly respected group of health care leaders already a part of our Affiliated Network, including Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Rogers Memorial Hospital.”
Integrated Health Network of Wisconsin’s other current members are: Agnesian HealthCare, Columbia St. Mary’s, Froedtert Health, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Hospital Sisters Health System/Prevea Health, Ministry Health Care, SSM Health Care of Wisconsin, and Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare.
