Our health network’s mission speaks to our commitment to improving the quality of life for the communities we serve. We reach beyond the walls of our hospital into Waukesha, Washington, Ozaukee, Manitowoc and Milwaukee Counties with a diverse offering of services and programs that benefit “vulnerable populations” — people with limited affordable access to health care services.

The Froedtert & MCW health network delivers highly coordinated, cost-effective health care to residents of southeastern Wisconsin and beyond.

We are proud of our commitment to your health and well-being. One step at a time, Froedtert & MCW health network will continue to improve the quality of life in our communities and beyond.

What is Community Engagement?

Community Engagement proactively addresses community health needs through innovative programs and partnerships that improve population health and reduce disparities. 

Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years, Froedtert Health aligns resources with JKV Research, LLC, other local area health systems and Health Departments to participate in a shared data collection process called the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). This CHNAs serve as the foundation for each hospital’s implementation strategies to improve health outcomes and reduce disparities. Learn more about Community Health Needs Assessments and Implementation Strategies at the following locations:

Key Areas of Community Health Care Needs

Community engagement efforts are based on identified community health needs established from recent community health needs assessments.
