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.
Chartwell Midwest Wisconsin has been a proud affiliate of UW Health since 1994. With a focus on community-based home healthcare, we have the privilege of building new and lasting relationships with the patients we service. In the last year, we have expanded our team to include skilled home health, home medical equipment and certified fitters, and opened our Ambulatory Infusion Suite in addition to our infusion pharmacy, enteral therapy program and medical management teams. To ensure continued access to community-based home healthcare for shared patient populations, UW Health and UnityPoint Health have consolidated these services under Chartwell. This 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.
We want you to be part of the 200+ employees that work at Chartwell Midwest Wisconsin. Our community-based home healthcare services are primarily focused in Dane County, and we service home infusion patients throughout the state of Wisconsin and portions of Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota. The combined expertise and experience of our teams is nothing short of impressive. Fun Fact: Two of our 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.
