Neenah-based health care provider ThedaCare, which has a large presence in the northeast and central parts of Wisconsin, and Wauwatosa-based Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin today announced a partnership under which the Froedtert health network will provide advanced levels of medical care for ThedaCare patients for unique specialty services such as heart and lung transplants and treatment of advanced heart failure, with ThedaCare providing care locally before and after.

“The Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network and ThedaCare have a shared commitment to the people of Wisconsin,” said Cathy Jacobson, president and CEO of Froedtert Health. “Enhancing access to the most advanced levels of specialty care through this new partnership supports our missions to improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve.”

The Froedtert & MCW health network will also provide virtual critical care in coordination with ThedaCare providers as part of the partnership. There will be an opportunity to add more specialty services over time based on community need.
