SCW 2023 Summer Meeting Recap

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Heidel House on August 5th for the SCW 2023 Summer Meeting!!

We appreciate the energy, enthusiasm and active participation from attendees and did our best to record the ideas generated from the Q&A sessions in the morning and the breakout rooms in the afternoon.

As a result of positive feedback from attendees, we have decided to hold the 2024 Summer Meeting in the same location in early August.

Funding Updates

We are excited to announce new funding for SCW that was awarded through the 2023-2025 Biennial State Budget! These new funds will be used to support and grow SCW’s infrastructure and existing quality initiatives, and potentially add new initiatives. In addition, we were awarded a grant from the state’s Opioid Settlement Funds which will be used to build off of SCW’s early successes and continue to decrease perioperative opioid use and prescribing across the state.

Thank you to all our members who were involved in securing this funding. This would not be possible without bipartisan support, and we are grateful to the members of the Joint Finance Committee, the State Legislature, and Governor Tony Evers for supporting the mission of SCW!
