The Nursing Services team at Fort HealthCare thrives with an ongoing passion and dedication felt throughout entire organization.

We first acknowledge our devoted nurses, physicians, clinicians and employees with sincere appreciation to the entire team as we remember these words of Helen Keller’s prominent quote, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

Our Philosophy

The Nursing Services Philosophy demonstrates how we find our path as we provide care to those who entrust us with their health and well-being.

Through accountability and individual perspectives, Fort HealthCare Nursing Services will value, promote, and create an atmosphere that partners with providers, the community, and technology to support practices which reflect standards of excellence, collaborative relationships, and quality patient care.

Supporting Population Health

Nursing Services has a very significant role in supporting ‘Population Health’ programs and initiatives. Working together with our colleagues towards a common passion for improving the health of a population aligns our Nursing Philosophy with our mission, to ‘Improve the Health and Well-being of Our Community’.

Our nurses are highly driven to care for the people of this community, and have the tenacity to navigate the challenges faced each and every day. We are guided by our ‘Overarching Goals’ to continuously develop and adopt best practices with our eyes on the future and our vision to ‘Be the Healthiest Community in Wisconsin’.

Overarching Goals

  • Holistic & Preventative Care
  • Interdisciplinary Collaboration
  • Community Partnerships
  • Professional Growth & Development
  • Leadership Development

We work with a philosophy of shared governance. Fort HealthCare supports the belief that staff members who are integral in direct patient care are the best individuals to be involved in improving the practice environment and health care outcomes for our patients and their families.  Nursing Services shared governance is represented by Unit Based Councils (UBC) across the organization with each UBC Nursing Chair participating in an central Clinical Practice Council (CPC) with the Chief Nursing Officer.  Overarching goals of the councils include: Improving staff autonomy and satisfaction; enhancing the patient experience; improving quality outcomes; maintaining safety; upholding fiscal accountability to the organization.
