Wisconsin Health News is an independent, nonpartisan, online news service designed to meet the information needs of busy Wisconsin health care professionals, decision makers, and consumers. As health care issues take on increasing importance in the state, and around the country, our mission is to provide in-depth coverage of the stories that matter to Wisconsin’s health care leaders.
Wisconsin Health News provides information on all sectors of the health care industry including hospitals, insurance companies, long term care, consumer advocacy, government, and much more. Our morning email newsletter includes a roundup of the day’s most important health care stories, including original content from Wisconsin Health News you can’t find anywhere else.
We are always looking for new topics to cover. Please help us grow by sending story tips, press releases, and calendar items to firstname.lastname@example.org.
