WisBusiness: ThedaCare: New partnership will focus on enhancing pediatric primary and specialty care in Northeast and Central Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

hree leading healthcare organizations – Bellin Health,  Children’s Wisconsin and ThedaCare – are announcing a new pediatric joint venture  with a shared focus on improving the health and well-being of children and adolescents  in Northeast and Central Wisconsin, as well as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Through focused coordination, closer alignment, and resource investments, the  partnership will make a meaningful impact on the lives of children, adolescents, their  families, and the region’s communities.

The organizations, which will remain independent entities and continue to be  responsible for the day-to-day operations of pediatric services at their clinics and  facilities, will work closely together to enhance pediatric primary and specialty care to  benefit children and adolescents in this growing region. Each partner organization will  play an essential role, with direct benefits to patients that include:

• Bringing additional pediatric services and specialists to the region to expand  access to local, close-to-home care.

• Reducing the need for children and their families to travel outside the region  when a higher level of care is needed.

• Consistent, best-practice standards of care across each organization’s care  settings in the region.

• Tailored child and adolescent services that meet community-specific needs  with the right resources, expertise, skilled providers and clinical staff,  technology and more.

• Better and more efficient care through seamless care coordination and  tighter alignment across the three systems.
