Leadership & Structure

Leader driven for sustained results.

The Milwaukee Health Care Partnership operates under a sponsor board and operations council, comprised of the senior market executives of the private members and government entities. The organization operates as a managed consortium, not incorporated as a 501(c)3. Fiscal agency is provided by Columbia St. Mary’s, Inc.

Joy R. Tapper serves as the Partnership’s executive director, managing the consortium’s initiatives, which include significant contributed expertise from its members. Currently, about 100 health care leaders and providers participate in nearly a dozen committees and workgroups.

Partnership operations are funded through member contributions, each assessed relative to their size. Program and project activities are funded through a blend of member support and philanthropy.

The Partnership operations council oversees the development of an annual operating plan, with strategies and tactics supporting each of its four goals: expanding coverage, increasing access, improving care coordination and improving community health.
