Froedtert West Bend Hospital's mission speaks to our commitment to improving the quality of life for the communities we serve. To that end, we reach beyond the walls of our hospital into Washington County with a diverse offering of services and programs that benefit "vulnerable populations" — people with limited/affordable access to health care services.

We are proud of our commitment to your health and well-being. One step at a time, Froedtert West Bend Hospital (formerly known as St. Joseph’s Hospital) will continue to improve the quality of life in our community and beyond.

Health Community Fund

Froedtert Health is a member of the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership, a public private consortium dedicated to improving care for underserved populations in Washington County. Through the Partnership, health systems and the local health department in Washington 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 West Bend Hospital implementation strategy to improve health outcomes and reduce disparities.

The following reports are instrumental in prioritizing significant health needs with in our community to implement strategies for the overall improvement.
