OUR COMMUNITY
RRHCN is highlighted in the 2021 Wisconsin Population Health & Equity Report Card
Jefferson County and the Rock River Health Care Network (RRHCN/Network) were recently recognized in the "2021 Wisconsin Population Health and Equity Report Card", published by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute . According to the report, “the 2021 Report Card is a call to action to better understand the health of our communities and implement strategies to create conditions that allow all people to have a fair and just chance to lead the healthiest lives possible."

“It is an honor to be recognized for the work of the Rock River Health Care Network. Bringing together this group of varied partners has been a wonderful experience and it is exciting to see how developing new relationships truly is making a positive difference in the health of our communities”, stated Kristin Wallace, RRHCN Network Director.

The RRHCN was formed in 2020 to increase health equity in Jefferson and Dodge Counties, Wisconsin, specifically focusing on low-income individuals’ access to primary care and providing quality health care at a lower cost. Development of the Network was made possible through a federal grant awarded to Fort HealthCare in 2020 through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $900,000 with 80% financed with non-governmental sources. This Award will enable RRHCN to implement a strategic plan to accomplish this work.

The RRHCN is comprised of eight local organizations that have a long history of collaboration, and include Fort HealthCare, Greater Watertown Community Health Foundation, Jefferson County Health Department, Jefferson County Human Services, Rainbow Hospice, Rock River Community Clinic, Watertown Health Department, and Watertown Regional Medical Center. There are many strategies that can increase access to healthcare for all. RRHCN’s accomplishments thus far have included merging the area safety net clinics (medical and dental) to form the Rock River Community Clinic (RRCC), installation of an electronic health record system for RRCC, assistance developing more robust clinical systems, and support for RRCC to become a newly established FQHC (Federally Qualified Health Center).
