Care Rooted in Wisconsin

We are at the beginning of an exciting journey to reinvent the future of health care in Wisconsin.

Froedtert Health and ThedaCare have signed a letter of intent to start a process to combine our organizations to advance local health care for our patients and improve the health and well-being of our communities.

With Wisconsin values, people and communities at the core, our vision for the combined organization is clear. We will:

Help the people of Wisconsin live their unique, best lives, providing better and more seamless local access to comprehensive, high-quality care when people are sick or injured and serving as a true partner in health to help keep people well.

Be based in Wisconsin, led by people who live and work in Wisconsin and governed by a parent board composed of current board members from both organizations including two board members who serve on both the boards of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Health concurrently.

Deliver real value and bring innovative solutions for the health care needs of our state and communities, including addressing health equity, health disparities and more, with a clear commitment to urban, suburban and rural areas.

Honor and grow the strong legacies of clinical excellence and community commitment that are the shared hallmarks of our organizations.

Work in concert with our partners at the Medical College of Wisconsin to bring together every aspect of care, including primary care, specialty care, the most advanced levels of care, clinical trials, graduate medical education and more.

Working collaboratively with our partners at the Medical College of Wisconsin, we will harness the excellence of our organizations to build and grow something new that will make a lasting impact on the future of health and health care in Wisconsin.
