High Quality, High Value Health Care --
A Wisconsin Advantage
High quality, accessible care is a hallmark of Wisconsin’s health system. The federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has recognized Wisconsin for five years in row as being one of the top performing states based on the quality of its health care. The Agency analyzed data from a large number of sources that measured the quality of care delivered in hospitals, medical clinics, nursing homes, and home health agencies.
In a recent interview with Business Facilities magazine, WHA Executive Vice President Eric Borgerding explains why Wisconsin’s high value health care is an advantage for the state’s employers and a good reason for new business to locate in our state.
