Since our founding in 1980, Froedtert Hospital, a not-for-profit organization, has been dedicated to improving the health and well being of the community we serve.

We show our commitment to Froedtert Hospital’s mission through programs that benefit “vulnerable populations” — people with limited access to health care services — and through programs that train the next generation of health care workers.

Froedtert Hospital is committed to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve through health care programs and services that are measurable, accessible and culturally appropriate, recognizing the greatest opportunity for impact is in Milwaukee’s underserved, urban population.

We partner with community organizations to share resources, improve access to health care and promote healthier lifestyles.

Reports and Strategy Documents

Froedtert Health is a member of the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership, a public private consortium dedicated to improving care for underserved populations in Milwaukee County. Through the Partnership, health systems and the local health departments in Milwaukee County aligned resources to complete a shared community health needs assessment (CHNA). A CHNA is a tool to identify significant community health needs and issues through a robust data collection and analysis process. State, county and community data is collected through community health surveys, key stakeholder interviews, focus groups, a compiling of secondary source data and internal hospital data. This CHNA serves as the foundation for the Froedtert Hospital and Froedtert Bluemound Rehabilitation Hospital implementation strategies to improve health outcomes and reduce disparities.

The following reports are instrumental in prioritizing significant health needs and improving overall community health.
