In an effort to best serve our patients and make all services available, over the years we have developed invaluable partnerships with various organizations.  These collaborations make it possible to give our patients the treatment they need even if we can’t provide it within our walls.  An overwhelming thank you to all of our loyal partnerships throughout the community.

The Milwaukee Health Care Partnership

Sixteenth Street is a proud member of the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership (MLHCP), “a public/private consortium dedicated to improving health care for low income, underserved populations in Milwaukee County, with the aim of improving health outcomes, reducing disparities and lowering the total cost of care.”

Specialty Access for Uninsured Program (SAUP)

The SAUP model is a MLHCP initiative forming partnerships between safety net clinics and hospital systems to provide specialty care to uninsured individuals that is clinically appropriate, timely, managed and distributed equitably among health systems.

SAUP Fact Sheet

Hospital Partnerships

Columbia St. Mary’s

Since 1975, Sixteenth Street has worked in partnership with Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital (CSM) in Milwaukee to be able to provide comprehensive care for our patients. Sixteenth Street’s certified nurse midwives and family medicine physicians perform most of our deliveries at CSM in conjunction with CSM/Medical College of Wisconsin residency program, keeping costs down and providing the residents with the exposure to midwife assisted natural births.

Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin

Children’s Hospital is the other major hospital affiliation in Milwaukee for Sixteenth Street providers.  Excellent hospital care needs to be supported by quality primary medical care before as well as after a hospital visit.  Children’s relies on Sixteenth Street pediatric staff to handle complicated cases and to coordinate services, especially for mono-lingual Spanish speaking families.  Sixteenth Street looks to the expertise and state of the art technologies available at Children’s to be able to provide our patients with the best care modern medicine can offer.

ProHealth Care

Sixteenth Street's Waukesha Clinic was founded with the assistance of the Waukesha Memorial Hospital Foundation and ProHealth Care in Waukesha.  Waukesha Memorial Hospital continues as our hospital partner for patients in Waukesha County.  The hospital administers the discounted pharmacy program for our patients who qualify and is our major referral source for specialty care.  A representative from ProHealth Care serves on Sixteenth Street’s governing Board of Directors.

Advocate Aurora Health

Advocate Aurora Health was a critical partner in the opening of Sixteenth Street's Layton Clinic in 2018 through the donation of the building in addition to a $1 million contribution from the Aurora Better Together Fund.

Froedtert Health & the Medical College of Wisconsin

In an effort to extend health care services to medically underserved people and improve the health of residents in the communities we serve, Froedtert Health & the Medical College of Wisconsin donated $12 million to Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers to increase access to care in the southside of Milwaukee, one of the city's most underserved communities.
