Froedtert Health’s academic-community model of care uniquely positions the system to provide greater value to purchasers of health care. As the only health system in eastern Wisconsin connecting an academic medical center to community-based network of care, we can deliver the right care at the right time and place. And that translates to value. 

Examples of the Academic-Community Model

Through the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Network, cancer care is provided in the community hospital setting whenever possible. If patients need a specialized treatment, they may connect with the Clinical Cancer Center on the Froedtert Hospital campus — and return home for follow-up care. Through this connection, the Cancer Network brings more communities direct access to nationally and internationally known specialists who focus on specific cancers, advanced treatments and technologies, and clinical trials that may provide further options.
