Three Become One
Community Care Connections of Wisconsin (CCCW), ContinuUs, and Western Wisconsin Cares (WWC) intend to join forces as three MCOs become one. The planned merger of the three organizations will result in one organization that is strategically positioned to compete within the current long-term care system, as well as within any reformed system considered by the state of Wisconsin in the future. More importantly, this move allows the reach of one unified organization to support person-centered and community-focused efforts across the state.
Given the changing landscape of Wisconsin’s long-term care industry, leaders from each of the organizations began discussions related to strategic opportunities to build on the collective experience, knowledge base, and expertise of each organization’s offering. Upon deeper exploration, it became clear the three organizations were aligned to become one.
The merged organization will provide long-term care services and supports to nearly 15,000 Family Care members across 46 counties, employ approximately 1,100 people, and partner with thousands of valued stakeholders.
A merger date of January 1, 2017 is anticipated. “As single entities, we do great work. As joined partners, we will have even greater impact,” concluded the three leaders of this people-centered venture.
