Our Vision

What We Can Accomplish Together: UnityPoint Health - Meriter and UW Health 

We have a proud tradition of having worked together for nearly 50 years to deliver excellent patient care.

We have a shared goal to improve the health and well-being of the people of Madison and the region. We are dedicated to our values of compassion, excellence, innovation and integrity. 

Our vision is to build on this history and shared experience by more formally partnering together.  Together, we'll share our knowledge, facilities and resources in integrating patient care. Through potential collaboration, we can eliminate clinical and financial red tape for patients and their families, and offer the community: 

Greater access for patients where and when they need care, without duplicating costly investments in facilities

  • A smart, efficient delivery system that optimizes the best of both organizations
  • Enhanced coordination of care
  • Sharing of best practices that further elevate quality
  • Strengthening of our population health efforts 

What We Can Accomplish Together: Physicians Plus Insurance Corp., Unity Health Plans Insurance Corp., and Gundersen Health Plan 

Physicians Plus Insurance Corp., Unity Health Plans Insurance Corp., and Gundersen Health Plan have a vision as well: To expand health insurance coverage options in Wisconsin and throughout the regions we serve. 

By creating a more comprehensive, sustainable and competitive health insurance organization for employers and members, our goal is to offer members a greater choice of providers, products and plans.

In today's healthcare landscape, we can be more effective by working together. Our combination will allow the health plans to: 

  • Share best practices that further enhance service to members;
  • More efficiently run and manage our organizations; and
  • Create a stronger organization able to thrive in a challenging environment. 

This is the logical next step for us in a challenging healthcare environment. As a result of health reform, the industry is evolving for hospitals, physicians and health plans alike. As we navigate this changing landscape, our goal is to position ourselves for long-term success so we can serve the community well into the future.
