Patients in southeastern Wisconsin count on Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital for a full range of health services, including trauma, transplant, sports medicine, and senior care. The 500-bed hospital, also known as Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin, is part of the Froedtert Health system (pronounced "fray-dert"). Specialty units include cancer, dermatology, neuroscience, birthing, fertility, urology, and vein clinics. The hospital also serves as a teaching facility for the Medical College of Wisconsin, and it partners with the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin to provide pediatric services. Froedtert Hospital, which was founded in 1980, operates the only adult Level One trauma center in the region.
Froedtert Health offers medical practice care in roughly 35 specialties and subspecialties. Beyond the hospital's walls, it operates four diagnostic imaging centers as well as rehabilitation facilities and a handful of primary care clinics in the community. The Froedtert Health system also includes Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls; St. Joseph's Hospital in West Bend, Wisconsin; and Froedtert Health Medical Group.
In 2010 Froedtert Health acquired ProHealth Care Medical Associates practices in six Germantown, Hartford, and Menomonee Falls locations. The practices, now operating as Froedtert Health, included three general clinics, specialty services, behavioral health, rehabilitation, and a physician practice. – less
