Our Mission

Participating Hospitals

The Surgical Collaborative of Wisconsin (SCW) is a collaborative practice change community that aims to optimize quality and reduce costs by improving surgical care and fostering provider professional development across practice settings.

To achieve this mission, SCW will:

  • Establish a collaborative, non-competitive environment in which surgeons, related health care providers, and hospital administrators around the state can gather to promote the delivery of surgical care that is safe, effective, equitable, and patient-centered
  • Develop a platform for comparative benchmarking of member-defined performance measures
  • Disseminate evidence-based guidelines and facilitate tailoring of site-specific implementation strategies
  • Provide a forum for individualized feedback and continued surgeon performance improvement
