Community Advisory Council

Formed in 2008, the Community Advisory Council (CAC) is intended to provide information and feedback that will assist the hospital in improving the quality of life in the communities we serve through healthcare programs and services that are measurable, accessible and culturally appropriate; recognizing the greatest opportunity for impact is in Milwaukee’s underserved, urban population.

The Community Advisory Council is a select group of community representatives and partners who:

  • Serve as an advisory body to the community benefit department and other hospital departments to assure that our services are accessible and culturally appropriate
  • Provide input on strategic opportunities for health improvement, health education and other community benefit initiatives
  • Serve as a conduit for their constituent members, communities and neighborhoods about emerging health needs and issues
Composition:
  • 18-25 community organizations/social service agencies that have a strong commitment and interest in community health improvement
  • Key representation from ethnic, immigrant/refugee, disabled, elderly and faith-based communities
  • Representation from key Froedtert Hospital and Medical College of Wisconsin departments
