As healthcare providers, we expect to be the best at what we do and do what is right every time. We hold ourselves accountable to safety, service, and compassion. Through these values, we strive to make a difference in the lives of our patients and employees.
We’ve been a proud affiliate of UW Health since 1994, and our focus has always been on delivering exceptional holistic case management and home health care. Our services include visits from licensed nurses and therapists, expertise from respiratory therapists, intravenous therapy, enteral therapy, and a wide variety of home medical and durable medical equipment coordination.
As Chartwell has grown, so has our breadth of services. Starting as a home health infusion company, we added Chartwell Health Resources (CHR) in 2000, which concentrates on coordinating medical equipment and home health services for regional Quartz patients. CHR works closely with providers to ensure patients receive quality products and services for their continuation of care.
Over 85 employees currently work at Chartwell Midwest Wisconsin, and we service patients throughout the state of Wisconsin as well as portions of Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota.
Fun Fact: Three employees have stood the test of time with Chartwell, including our President, Don Powell — 25 years and counting!
Consolidation & Growth
At the same time that home health care needs have been growing and becoming more specialized, there’s also a need to serve patients more efficiently while retaining a high level of quality. To ensure continued access to home-based healthcare services for shared patient populations, three entities — UW Health’s Home Care, Home Medical Equipment, and CareWear — combined with Chartwell Midwest Wisconsin in July 2019.
The consolidation creates the opportunity to allow systems, staff, and leadership to benefit from each other’s expertise and experience, and allows Chartwell to continue to be a UW Health affiliate while creating more flexibility to respond to home care challenges and opportunities as a stand-alone business unit.
What the future holds
Combining all of these entities into one allows Chartwell to expand our patient offerings and streamline our operations. In May 2019, we broke ground on a renovation of the former Globe University building in Middleton, and we expect to move into our new building in April 2020.
With room for additional cleanrooms, offices, a warehouse, patient retail center, and an infusion center, this building creates a way for Chartwell to service patients in the ways most convenient for them.
