ProHealth Care and UW Health are expanding their clinical partnership to include heart and vascular care, the two health systems announced Tuesday.
Under a clinical co-management agreement, the health systems will work to improve heart and vascular services in Waukesha County and the surrounding area.
“Working with UW Health, we will take our program to a new level of excellence,” said Susan Edwards, ProHealth Care CEO.
UW Health will provide medical and administrative oversight, and the newly opened heart and vascular center at ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital will be named UW Health Heart & Vascular Center at ProHealth Care.
“We share with ProHealth Care an intense focus on improving the quality of care, and we are excited to begin this new partnership,” said Dr. Alan Kaplan, UW Health CEO.
UW Health and ProHealth Care have a similar partnership on cancer care, launching the UW Cancer Center at ProHealth Care in 2015.
