It’s Been Five Years!

This year marks the 5th anniversary of the first meeting of the Surgical Collaborative of Wisconsin! In July 2018, we gathered at Gundersen Health System for our first member meeting. Our newly formed Executive Committee led strategy discussions for the success of SCW, we debuted and distributed our first round of performance reports, and we concluded the day with initiative specific breakout sessions.


State Budget Grant Update

Over the past year, SCW has been in partnership with the Wisconsin Surgical Society (WSS) to support surgeons through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. This partnership was made possible through funding from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
